Inspiring and practical this training is worth its weight in gold!
Facts/Figures & Resources
A UK government site that is remarkably good. You can research potential jobs, identifying whether you have the skills required (go to the bottom where it says job profiles), find out what skills you already have and how they could be used, whether you need to change careers to maximise job satisfaction and a wealth of other information.
If you want a job but can’t get it because you don’t have any relevant experience, this site could be for you. There are a wealth of options Monday to Sunday, mornings, afternoons and evenings and even working from home. Definitely worth a look and it updates regularly. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to do but didn’t know if it was right for you, this could be a good (safe) way to find out!
Brain Facts. In case you ever wanted to know more about the remarkable piece of machinery inside your own head and how it works, this is a fact filled but easily digestible site giving you the basics on what it is, how it works, and what we know to date.
A resource no one should be without. You can find almost anything and everything on here from career focussed skills to motivational quotes to facts about NLP to teaching resources to plain fun.
Fun and information packed animated videos based on talks given at the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. Some of the videos are quite the wakeup call and I particularly recommend Dan Pink’s talk on what really motivates us and Sir Ken Robinson’s talk on changing education paradigms. Older talks are linked from the bottom and the page is regularly updated.
Employment & Benefits
This site not only gives you links to other resources for jobs, but tells you those facts it’s always useful to know such as employer and employee rights, national minimum wage, dealing with grievances, maternity and paternity rights and so forth. There are links on the left to other resources so you know your facts and your rights in any situation.
A site that allows you to check if you are getting all the benefits you are entitled to in the UK. Perhaps you don’t think you’re entitled to anything and are struggling to make ends meet when in fact you could get some help.
If your finances are a mess and you can’t see a way out, don’t go to the intermediaries who charge you, go to these guys. They are practical, efficient, free and will give you excellent advice to get you back on track without judgment. Real, friendly people can call you back on their phone bill and go through what you need to do to fix things, giving you peace of mind and the knowledge that you’re actively doing something to sort things out.
