Adult Pre-Employment

When you were a teenager at school studying for your GCSEs, you will probably remember everyone around you drilling into you just how important the qualifications were and how important it was to get a good education.

You probably also remember thinking it can’t really be that important or make that much of a difference to things when you’re an adult.

As it turns out, qualifications really do matter and really do make a difference.

The Office for National Statistics found that the average person with no qualifications would earn 20% less than someone who held GCSEs (of grade A – C). Even more staggering, was the statistics that showed someone with a Higher Education qualification (such as a Level 5 Diploma), would earn 45% more (on average per hour) than someone with an education level of GCSEs.

And it’s not just about earing more, research shows that learning has lots of other benefits.

Learning Keeps You Healthy

Learning keeps your mind engaged and body active. It helps you get new and knowledge-based perspectives on the world around you. It helps you gain new experiences and trains your brain to handle a wide range of challenges.

All these factors combine to keep you healthy. Take, for example, a cooking class. Cooking nutritious food for your household can improve your (and your family’s) health. And because a healthy person is a productive person, the class will have helped you increase your productivity at work.

Learning is also exciting and rewarding. It helps discover your unknown potentials. Growing your skillset helps you realize how useful you are to lots of people, and that makes you happy and mentally healthy.

Whether it’s learning a new skill to get a new job, or if its to set up your own small business, learning opens doors. You will make new contacts and it’s a direct way to take control of your career and create a range of choices that improve your lifestyle.
