#ad You don’t need to look smart to learn these days… 🤓
As an actor, presenter, personal trainer, chef & founder, I’ve always been someone that loves learning about new things and seeing how I can improve myself as a result, so I’m really excited about taking on a course from The Skills Toolkit!
By trying as many things as I can, I’m lucky to have found several things that I truly love doing and I’m even luckier that some of those combine as part of my job (which seems crazy to say considering where I started with all of them). The satisfaction of learning something different and discovering that I can add a new string to my bow is also really powerful - accomplishing new things makes you feel good. I don’t think the importance of that can be stressed enough, especially given what we are all going through at the moment and how hard it can be to feel like you’re accomplishing anything during this unprecedented time.
Having founded a tech start-up last year, I’ve discovered a whole new world in computer science and programming that I knew absolutely nothing about. Luckily for me, ‘The Skills Toolkit’ has a really large range of courses in computer science and coding, so I’ve chosen to do the ‘Programming Essentials in Python’ course by @Cisco. I’ve also got my eye on a few of the others including courses on machine learning and AI!
You don’t need to be interested in computer science to find a course for you, though. There are 79 FREE courses on there ranging from ‘Personal Growth and Wellbeing’ to ‘Business Finance’, ‘Digital Design and Marketing’ and even ‘Practical Maths’. It really is the perfect way to use this difficult time to learn, improve and better yourself so that you come out of it more employable and more skilled than when you came into it!
