DO A QUIRKY COURSE WITH LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS

There are some skills in life you don’t know you want until you learn them, and Work-Shop courses fall into this category. From welding for beginners to phoneography (how to take perfect snaps on a smart gadget), terrarium making, light painting and more conventional courses like financial confidence for small business owners, there’s something for everyone. The intimate one-day classes are also a great place to meet creative types – although everyone is a beginner, so no judgement.

LEARN TO CODE (IN A DAY)

Can you learn to code in a day? This is what the team behind Decoded promise. You might not be able to create a complex multi-layer platform, but after ten hours in the ‘classroom’ you will leave with an app you coded from start to finish, using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Since the course launched in the UK, thousands of time-poor novices have upskilled with Decoded, and the team now run courses in America and Australia.

STUDY AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE 

Prefer to work remotely? Open Colleges is Australia’s leader in online learning. If you have a gap in your résumé, they have over 150 courses on offer, covering topics including business operations, journalism, interior design, veterinary studies and childcare. You can also structure the study program to fit your schedule, whether that means studying hard and fast or staggering it over a longer period. If you’re on a shoestring, there are also flexible payment options.
