Employment and personal development training

You may want to develop skills that will help you find or remain in paid employment, either alongside caring or after caring ends. Employment skills and personal development courses include:

  • computer/IT training
  • career/education advice
  • effective writing and numeracy
  • money management
  • food hygiene
  • learning a foreign language
  • creative writing
  • art therapy

Many courses are easy to access and flexible enough to fit around your caring responsibilities. Many are free or subsidised.
