Online Courses Kick Started Career Move
When working in a government posting, we had many training courses. At the beginning I was a little resistant and like my longer term colleagues, felt there was rather too much ‘big brother’ about them. Actually though, after a short while, I really appreciated the value of these and when I looked more closely at the subject matter and the depth to which the courses had been designed, I realised that some of them were a golden opportunity to push me up the system. I was jolly happy to log on to the IT courses and I learned so much about how to navigate the whole ms suite of office tools – I won a departmental award for one particular presentation and that set me up to be a first class private secretary in my last long term posting. The e-learning tools at my disposal were a lifeline in an otherwise possibly mediocre world! Online courses are the most sensible way to engage with education for all sorts of people.
