We are living through an extraordinary time; the covid-19 pandemic has affected just about everyone in the world, no matter where they live or what job they have. Working from home has become the ‘new normal, giving us more free time, and education has moved from face-to-face to virtual classrooms, so there has never been a better opportunity to super charge your career – all from the comfort of your own home!
We all know that hard skills (those that form the basis of our professional knowledge such as, undergraduate or Masters degrees) are important as they teach us what we need to know to work within our chosen profession, but there are also soft skills (those that could be termed personal attributes or qualities such as, management and leadership skills, cultural intelligence, and so on) that help us perform our role more effectively, ensure we communicate successfully with people from other cultures, and can coach or mentor others.
However, between these two set of skills, there is another skill set that is often overlooked – Accredited courses
What is an Accredited Course?
An accredited course is a course that has been approved by a professional organization. For example, law courses in Dubai are accredited if they are approved by the Dubai Legal Affairs Department (DLAD).
If a course is accredited, you can be certain that it contains all the necessary elements to be relevant within the chosen industry.
Accreditation also shows a high level of quality which will be recognised by prospective employers. The course may be a legal requirement for you to undertake a specific role or job, or it may teach skills and attributes that employers prefer their employees to hold.
Courses that are accredited can also give you access to professional bodies which can help with networking, insurance and further training.
Why Choose an Accredited Course?
We all know that taking a course which can advance your knowledge, improve your employability, or benefit your professional development is a good idea, but taking an accredited course goes one stage further than this by giving you recognizable qualifications that are relevant to your industry.
Professionals (no matter what industry they work in) choose accredited courses for the following reasons:
• Supplementary qualifications
• Move into a new area within an existing industry (for example, changing from family law to business law)
• Industry accepted
• More chance of internal progression for course attendees
• Improve job prospects
• Advance professional knowledge
At Creative Word we work alongside the Dubai Legal Affairs Department, and partner law firms, to deliver courses which are current, relevant, high quality and fully accredited.
This gives all attendees confidence in our training abilities and course content, ensuring they are receiving the best training available.
