Completing a certificate course as a part of your high school study can provide you with a wide array of benefits as you begin to move toward your preferred career path. In today’s blog, we’ll be going through our top 5 reasons we think you should complete a certificate course.

1. Acquire job-ready skills for entry-level positions

Most importantly, completing a certificate course will provide you with the necessary skills you need to work in your chosen industry. You will learn the ins and outs of your industry as you complete your certificate, readying you to move into an entry-level position.

2. Increase your employability

Employers look favourably upon potential employees with a wide and solid skill set. If a job opening comes down to one applicant who has completed a certificate course and one who hasn’t, the applicant with the certification is most likely going to come out on top.

3. Pathway to further study

If you’re looking to change industries or didn’t quite get the ATAR you needed for the course you were hoping to get into, a certificate course is an excellent stepping stone to get you to where you want to be.

4. Flexibility in your learning

Certificate courses often have a lot of flexibility in terms of when you learn and how quickly or slowly you move through the content – you can tailor your certificate to best match how you learn. This also provides you with a great work-life balance.

5. Improve your personal and professional development skills

Personal development skills such as initiative, self-confidence, and communication can be greatly improved throughout the completion of a certificate course, as can professional development skills including organisation, management, and critical thinking. More often than not, beginning a certificate will place you in a new environment that you’ve never experienced. You’ll learn a great deal about yourself, and learn a variety of new skills that will help you both in your professional life as well as your personal life.
