Education is the key to developing your career and a great way to broaden your outlook. A really good resource for online learning with affordable courses in a really wide range of sectors is www.coursera.org. Investing in your self-development is so important and ‘Coursera’ offers excellent courses from coding to morality in the work place to global diplomacy taught by professors from leading universities globally – it is just a matter of signing up! Fit your training into your commute, audio classes/podcasts probably won’t be the best running buddies but for a morning tube commute – ideal. Wherever I see individuals who are keen to progress in their careers the secret to making their way into another industry, field or up the corporate ladder is self-development.
Other resources include the City Lit – for £150 you can enrol on a course and get a personal tutor teach you about the Global Economy and Finance – a beginner’s guide. www.citylit.ac.uk
Open your eyes and never be afraid to ask, keep learning!
