How Our Free Online Courses Will Benefit You

Fast, free, and online? How could it get any better than that? Upskilling yourself with us at CT Skills is a fun and fast way to learn new knowledge, skills, and behaviours without spending a penny. Our free online courses come with many benefits for your personal and work lives. We have 6 sectors which include Mental Health, Health Care, Social Care, Childcare, Business Skills, and IT Skills. Throughout these, we offer levels 1, 2, and 3 so you can choose the best-suited level for you.

The best way to upskill yourself!

Firstly, one of the best things about our courses is that they’re entirely free. You may be thinking if that’s entirely true, but we can tell you, it is. All you need to know is if you’re eligible as we provide our courses to certain places across the UK. If you’re eligible, every course you enrol on will cost you absolutely nothing. Yep, that’s right, absolutely no cost!

We know that the cost of everything at the moment is constantly increasing. Everything is becoming more and more expensive as time goes on. That’s why it’s great that all the courses we provide are free, so you don’t have to spend a penny but still gain the knowledge and skills you desire. Other providers that offer courses like ours require you to pay around £399 for one course. You probably have the same thought as us, it’s a lot of money so why spend £399 on a course when you can get the same courses with us but at no cost?

Secondly, another great benefit of our courses is how fast they are. The typical time for the completion of an individual’s free online course is around 6-8 weeks depending on if you enrol on a level 2 or 3 as our level 3 courses are slightly longer as they are more advanced. Within each week, you only have to do a few hours of studying and learning however many previous learners have completed their course in a shorter period of time!

Having this choice of when you study is very beneficial as it only takes you a short period of time for you to gain a huge variety of skills and behaviours. This then allows you to get on with whatever you need to do during the working week and weekend whilst also having spare time to chill out and relax as needed. You can also keep on track of your work as you don’t need to study and learn during your working hours, you can complete it whenever!

Thirdly, every course we have is entirely remote and online including the enrolment and completion. You can complete your course in whatever environment you want. You could work in a café, on your sofa, in your bed, at a friend’s house, wherever! Doing so gives you so much flexibility on where you study. So, if your career is remote or in person, our courses give you the option to learn wherever you need, all you require is to have access to your chosen course materials and a comfortable place for you to learn.

We know that doing these remote saves so much time, money, and effort as there is no need to travel, spend on fuel or public transportation or even take time out of your day to go somewhere out of your way. Having everything ready for you to access online is fabulous!

Enhance your development within your work and personal lives

Each one of our free online courses is absolutely jam-packed with knowledge, skills, and behaviours for you to grasp and turn into strengths in your work and personal lives. You can sift through all our courses to find the best-suited one for you varying from Mental Health and Childcare to Health Care and Business Skills. Within each course, you will have a list of the things you learn including problem solving, breaking down barriers and learning how to identify issues within your chosen sector. This upskilling will help you enhance your development within your career, and your employer will be able to see the difference in your work while you are doing your course.

Doing extra learning outside of your career has been said by many individuals that it has helped them progress in their career further and give them a boost! It can also “fire the brain in a way that can shake off cobwebs and make us think in entirely new ways. Having new ideas means new ways of thinking!” This is a quote from the CPD Certification Service which you can access by clicking here.

After the completion of your free online course, you will receive a nationally recognised qualification that you can put on your CV including your skills! Doing so will make you stand out from the crowd with future employers looking to hire. Employers tend to look for individuals with a good skill set and communication, so they know they are hiring the best of the best. So having the knowledge you have just learnt on your course will give you that extra push to make you stand out from other individuals looking for the same position as you. All our courses give you the benefits you need for the career path you want to go down.

Our current free online courses

We currently have 36 courses available all with the same aim – to educate and enhance your understanding of Mental Health, Health Care, Social Care, Childcare, Business Skills, or IT Skills. Our Mental Health courses suit everyone and help each and every person who enrols no matter their career or situation. 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England so these courses are here to help you develop your knowledge and understanding of the conditions contributing to this statistic, including stress, anxiety, phobias, and depression. The courses in this sector will give you a great understanding of mental health within your career and personal life.

Our Health Care, Social Care and Childcare courses are perfect if you want to focus on those sectors in your career. Each course within these provides benefits to help you gain a better understanding of certain subjects such as The Safe Handling of Medication, Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care and Adverse Childhood Experiences. Our Business Skills courses are great for developing and learning new skills in working in a business. We have courses such as Creating a Business Start-up and The Principles of Team Leading which are perfect for any career.
