Job ready training courses are those that follow government guidelines for recommended levels of qualifications to start work immediately in a chosen career. There are a number of careers that accept a job ready distance learning course, here is a round up of the best available:

– Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 3 (STALIS) – The STALIS level 3 course has been developed to provide a clear pathway into a teaching assistant career. The course requires that students complete a 50 hour placement within a school environment to gain practical experience. The course is also a perfect building block for career development, as the natural progression for learners is to achieve HLTA status. This course also qualifies for 32 QCF credits, which are nationally recognised in further education institutions. If you would like a career as a Teaching Assistant, this course has all of the attributes to provide the learner with an excellent knowledge of the subject, and a real prospect of a job opportunity.

– Personal Assistant Diploma – “PA’s” are valuable members of any organisation and the development of a team with mutual understanding is essential. A Personal Assistant Diploma will give you the opportunity to gain knowledge of what is a very complex job role. A PA is often viewed as a vital cog in the smooth running of a business, with communication and time management being key attributes of the idea personal assistant. Gaining a qualification in this field will give individuals a head start and also the ability to demonstrate their understanding of managing business information and professionalism in their approach to work.

Job ready distance learning courses are an ideal way to develop a new set of skills while still in employment, or even while out of employment. The benefits of holding a qualification that immediately allows you to step into a job role are obvious, and could quite possibly be the start of something new in your career.
