What’s more im­por­tant than a choice about your fu­ture? This is a great time of year to plan ahead and set your­self some am­bi­tious tar­gets for 2019. At Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI we’ve got some great new cour­ses that can help you un­lock new and ex­cit­ing ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Avail­able at any of our learn­ing cen­tres, the new, 18-week, En­tre­pre­neur­ial Skills NPA will give you a great in­tro­duc­tion into run­ning a small busi­ness and could set you on the road to self-em­ploy­ment. You’ll de­velop per­sonal at­tributes such as interview skills, cus­tomer ser­vice and IT skills, which will pre­pare you for work in any field. The course will also pro­mote en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills such as de­vel­op­ing a busi­ness idea, busi­ness plan­ning, job cost­ing and cash­flow plan­ning – skills and knowl­edge that could help you start your own busi­ness, or pro­vide un­der­pin­ning knowl­edge for fur­ther study in a busi­ness­re­lated sub­ject.

The part-time In­tro­duc­tion to Child­hood Prac­tice is per­fect for any­one want­ing to make a ca­reer work­ing with small chil­dren but who doesn’t yet have en­try re­quire­ments for full-time cour­ses.

Over 18 weeks you’ll gain the ba­sic knowl­edge which will al­low you to progress to a full-time Early Years course in Septem­ber. This is a great stepping stone which will give you more time de­voted in class to de­velop your knowl­edge, at a pace that is achiev­able for those who’ve been away from ed­u­ca­tion for a while.

We have a Mar­itime Skills course avail­able in Oban or Lochgilp­head. This com­bines SQA and RYA/MCA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion so you’ll re­ceive a com­pre­hen­sive in­tro­duc­tion to the mar­itime in­dus­tries, as well as gain­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised cer­tifi­cates.

As an aca­demic part­ner of the Univer­sity of the High­lands & Is­lands, Ar­gyll Col­lege also gives you ac­cess to a wide range of part time and full-time de­gree pro­grammes many of which can be started at the end of Jan­uary.

We also have a range of part-time cour­ses which can help im­prove your skills and en­hance your chances of get­ting a job.

Visit our web­site or call us to find out what’s avail­able at your lo­cal Ar­gyll Col­lege cen­tre. Your fu­ture is just a click away.
