Don’t just take our word for it
Learning People student, Kyle experienced first hand how our Career Services leads you to success.
Kyle began the year as a holiday park warden and quickly landed a role as a Service Desk Analyst after getting certified with us.
“One of the reasons I actually went for the course was the flexibility of everything and the Career Services element in particular - just knowing you don’t just get abandoned alone with the course material made a huge difference to me…
“…During COVID I found that they were very helpful in getting my head around my CV, covering letter, sorting out LinkedIn and generally bringing everything to a more professional standard.”
Another success during the pandemic was coding student Jake. He had a job offer retracted after COVID-19 hit in March and the Career Services team was there to help him bounce back.
Jake secured a fantastic role as a Monitoring and Services Consultant, double the salary he was previously on.
“The support offered by Learning People has been brilliant, always there at the end of a phone call or text or email, whatever the problem may be.
“The career services team honestly has been the most supportive people I have ever met, we have laughed together, cried together and ultimately won together.”
Why is now the ideal time to get certified in tech and project management?
Businesses are recognising the value of technology as the workforce turns towards remote working. Another lockdown has us relying on technology for even the simplest of everyday tasks, such as communication and shopping. There has never been a better time to re-train and enter the tech and project management industries.
