Spring brings with it new life. Growth. A fresh start. Spring is the season that speaks of hope, the potential of becoming bigger and better. So why don’t you take your queue from nature and look at how you can flourish this spring.
1. Brush up on your skills with a short course
Perhaps you are frustrated that your career has become stagnant. Then today is the perfect time to brush up on your skills and revitalise the passion for your work with a short course. You will see the results in about 12 or 24 months, as you get to grips with your newly founded skills and achieve the insight needed to take your confidence to the next level. iQ Academy’s short courses, which range from financial, bookkeeping, public relations, and human resource, risk management, and logistics, leadership to employee wellness, will let you get in the door in some of the most in-demand occupations in South Africa. The effort you put into completing one of these courses will leave you feeling confident with your new skills and thriving at work.
2. Take your career to the next level with our higher education offerings
For those wanting to grow or perhaps change their career, a higher certificate course, accredited by the Department of Higher Education and Training, is an excellent point of entry. It is never too late to learn more. And if you’re wanting to make the big step up, then make the commitment that comes with choosing a higher certificate. Any of our four higher certificates – business management, human resource management, and marketing management –offer higher levels of study and specialisation in your chosen field. Think about it … in 18-24 months, you can grow into the professional you know you can be. Set aside the time and make the investment!
3. Plan for your future
To grow personally, you need to plan for growth. A good idea is to set goals for yourself. Write them down, with actionable steps on how to achieve them. When doing this, toe the line of being realistic but at the same time, don’t let the thought of taking risks deter you from being the best version of you! Share your goals with your support system, so that you have your very own cheerleaders to help you throughout your journey. Above all, be patient, growth takes time – but with perseverance you can do it!
