We all weigh up whether to put the time and effort into gaining an industry qualification. After all, when you are performing well in a very busy role, why bother?
For most of us, the scale needs to be tipped so that the effort involved is truly outweighed by some genuine reasons to act. So let’s look at some of the reasons for the current increase in the numbers of Employment Advisers signing up to complete their industry qualification.
Remaining passive and simply looking to your employer to meet your development needs may not be the best strategy in a sector right now as important contracts come and go.
When large scale change is looming, it’s downright empowering to feel you have given yourself some control, not merely waiting to see how it all ‘pans out’.
Widen your career options
To have a long-term career in the sector, you need to be one of those people that employers seek to keep and attract. An ESS qualification shouts that you are a person who takes their professional development seriously; takes action to keep improving their performance and holds sector-relevant credentials to prove your level of expertise. Qualifications widen your career options.
As the ESS jobs become increasingly more complex and demanding, it’s a sound strategy to ratchet up your professional development, purely for your own sake and wellbeing, let alone the benefits that can flow to your clients.
The last shot is the good news that you can gain the Award in Employability Services Sector by completing just two units of competency and a Certificate by completing five units! Not bad!
