Understanding your current skills

If you have done your job for several years, you may think that is the only type of job you could do! Transferable skills are a set of skills that you’re good at. You can build them up over time, through work, volunteering, education and life. You can apply these skills to a range of jobs.

Our advisors in Adult Learning can support you in understanding your current and transferrable skills. You will be given a dedicated advisor who will help you:

  • find out what interests and motivates you
  • identify your skills
  • find out what you can do with the skills you have

Discover your skills and careers

We can guide you through a range of online assessments, where you will answer questions about the things you like to do or are good at. Understanding yourself can help you work out what careers you may enjoy working in.

After the assessment, you will be given some suggestions of roles you may enjoy based on your answers. We can then guide you on exploring any of these jobs and careers based on the recommendations.

A skills health check will help you identify your personal and work-based skills. This information could be helpful if you're applying for a job or preparing for an interview.
