    Have you ever thought about adult learning?  I know I have and I am actually gaining French skills right now.  Is it harder as we get older?… not really  I am learning it as I am moving to France next year.  Very exciting but, as I knew no French, this is a little bit worrying 🙂

    Apart from moving so needing language skills, acquiring additional qualifications can open up new career opportunities and increase your chances of career advancement. Many industries and employers value higher education and may require specific qualifications for certain positions.

    It allows you to develop new skills and knowledge that can enhance your professional competence. It can help you stay updated with the latest industry trends and technological advancements, making you more valuable in the job market.

    Education is not only about professional development but also personal growth like the reason I am doing it. Learning new subjects and acquiring knowledge can broaden your perspective, boost your confidence, and provide a sense of fulfilment and intellectual stimulation.  In the real world, attending educational institutions, whether in-person or online, exposes you to a diverse group of individuals who share similar interests and goals. Building a network of peers, professors, and professionals in your field can provide valuable connections and opportunities for collaboration or mentorship.

    Not only that, but education equips you with transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and adaptability. These skills become increasingly important in a rapidly changing job market, where individuals need to be flexible and able to navigate new challenges.

    For me more, it is an investment in yourself and your personal growth. Many people, like myself, find great satisfaction in expanding their knowledge and achieving educational goals, regardless of age. It can boost your self-esteem, improve your quality of life, and provide a sense of accomplishment.

    For many of us though, online learning is the only way to feasibly do higher education

    This is not a problem, as online learning provides the flexibility to study at your own pace and schedule. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who are working or have other personal commitments. You can access course materials and lectures whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you, allowing you to balance your education with other responsibilities.  It also removes geographical barriers, making education more accessible to individuals who may not have the option to attend traditional brick-and-mortar institutions. You can choose from a wide range of courses and programs offered by reputable institutions around the world, without the need to relocate or commute.

    Not forgetting there is a variety of formats such as video lectures, interactive modules, discussion forums, and virtual simulations. These diverse learning options cater to different learning styles and preferences, making the learning experience more engaging and effective.

    I have found that online often have lower tuition fees compared to traditional in-person programs. Additionally, you save money on commuting, housing, and other expenses associated with attending a physical institution. This affordability makes education more accessible to a broader range of individuals.

    One of the best things is the sites often foster a global community of learners. Engaging in discussions and collaborative projects with students from different countries and backgrounds broadens your perspective and provides opportunities for networking and cultural exchange.

    While online learning offers numerous benefits, it’s important to choose reputable and accredited institutions or platforms to ensure the quality and recognition of your qualifications.  One of the better ones is a site called The Lead Academy who have given me a code for you to use if you would like to try them. Use Coupon Code: FESTIVE10 and they will give you 10% Discount for all courses

    Remember, age should never be a barrier to education. It’s never too late to pursue your educational goals and invest in your future.
