Getting back into learning can be a great way to help you prepare for job or career change or to help you move up the career ladder.


The most important thing is to find a course that meets your current learning needs but will also help you achieve your future ambitions. You will need to think about the skills or expertise you want to acquire and also ensure that any course you do will be valued in a future job or career.

NE Career Engine has lots of information to help you decide the best study option for you, however, you can also get one-to-one advice from the National Careers Service.

Complete the NE Career Engine HE Skills Map which will help you think about experiences, skills and achievements you already have and show you how they map to skills valued within higher education.

There are lots of opportunities for adults to study at local colleges, training providers or universities either full-time, part-time or through distance learning  - even if you are starting with few or no qualifications.
