As Michael Cain and Julie Walters showed us in the film adaptation of Willy Russell’s Educating Rita, it is never too late to discover the joy of learning and expanding the mind. As human beings, our brains are capable of incredible feats, and as Henry Ford famously said:
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”
Don’t be fooled into thinking school and ‘learning’ is just for the young. It is never too late to further your education and increase your potential, both in terms of your career and your ‘mind’s youth’, as Henry Ford would say. It’s all very well, you may think, to hark on about the romanticised benefits of learning, but in the real world, where do you find the time? Life gets filled up and before you know it, you barely have time to squeeze in a couple of social events. This is the beauty of e-learning. It fits around your schedule as you can log in online and complete a course or training from home. E-Learning has revolutionised the way we can consume information, making learning more accessible than ever before.
If you’re a business owner, training your staff has never been easier or more appealing – both to you and your employees. It’s no secret that training people makes them feel valued and boosts motivation and productivity in the workplace. Take it further and show staff you have thought about their busy schedules and likely wish not to travel to a training centre. If you think your workforce could benefit from some training or education, we have courses both online and in-house, in subjects ranging from train the trainer to food hygiene.
If you, like us, think a mind should be stimulated with learning and education, whatever the age, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
