New Skills

Employed or unemployed life needs to be a continuous learning experience. New skills make you more employable, they can change your perspective on the world and help you meet more people. Learning to be a chef or completing a bookkeeping course not only opens doors to employment and self-employment, these skills can be used in your everyday life. Always aim to be learning something new. Reaching goals and milestones subconsciously builds self-confidence as well as adding to your chances of finding paid employment.

Since its launch in 2006, the Sunday Mail Young ScotAwards has celebrated the inspirational contributions of thousands of young Scots who have made a real difference to communities across Scotland.

For the past ten years the Young Scot Awards have been a phenomenal success, recognising the amazing achievements of some of Scotland’s truly remarkable young people. The awards shine a light on the positive contributions young people make every day and provide a fantastic opportunity to see their efforts and dedication celebrated.

As an adult, it can be tough taking the first step back into education, especially if you struggle with a long-term health problem or disability or if you're looking after someone else.

But learning something new is a great way to get out of the house, boost your self-esteem and meet new people. Learning of course doesn't even have to have a specific outcome; it can be a rewarding end in and of itself. And the even better news is that there are a number of different routes back into education specifically tailored to suit adult learners.

You are never too old to learn. Learning something new or improving your existing skills is becoming increasingly popular with older people and there are lots of opportunities out there for you to try, many of them free of charge.
