Article | March 11, 2020

Article | March 11, 2020

We spend between 24 and 25 years of our lives working, so it would be remiss to think that the learning stops when you step out of education. On the contrary, at the rate of technology and change it’s clear that upskilling yourself is vital to adopt new skills. Growth, after all, is essential for your career progression, as well as personal growth. But what is upskilling, how can it benefit you, and what’s the deal with digital learning? In this feature we’ll examine this and more. Upskill meaning Upskilling is an investment in yourself (or an employee) to advance their skills, education and learning. It can be undertaken by an individual, or a company, to better further their growth.
