Learn While you Earn

by Dr. Catherine Dawson

ISBN: 9780749458980

Learn While You Earn offers an assessment of the wide range of opportunities facing those who want to learn a new skill or gain a qualification, but who want to retain the ability to earn a salary - including apprenticeships, internships, and part-time and distance learning.

This new title, published in conjunction with The Times, looks at the many ways in which learning can be initiated, re-started or continued while still earning money. From the more obvious routes of apprenticeships, to part-time learning through City & Guilds or the Open University, Learn While You Earn examines the full range of opportunities for those looking to broaden their skill base - whether they are a job seeker, in employment or in further or higher education.

The book includes flow diagrams to help you find the most appropriate scheme, case studies from people who have taken part in learning and earning schemes and an overview of the amount of money that each scheme offers.
