Enable blog posts image

To go with our new look website and our new office, we have decided to publish a monthly blog post. At Enable, we want you to learn more about us; the best way to do this was with Enable blog posts!

We will announce on our social media feeds each month as the latest Enable blog post is released. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and our new Instagram account!

If you would like to speak to a member of the team to learn more about the things we are talking about in our blog posts, contact us.

  • Top tips to starting a course
    This month our Marketing Specialist, Flick, gives her top tips to starting your new course. She says that “pre-start nerves are normal, but if you know how to set a plan and prepare yourself physically and mentally you can stop those nerves from holding you back”. A lot of people are nervous to start their course. ...
  • How does Enable operate our courses?
    A lot of people are often curious as to how Enable operates when it comes to delivering courses. We offer courses which are free to sign up and others which must be paid for by learners… so how does this work? What is the difference between the courses? In this month’s blog post we taker a ...
  • Why up to date training is important?
    It’s always important to keep your training up to date. We hear it all the time that up-to-date training is important for certain careers and job roles. Does that mean that it’s less important for other jobs and roles? Up to date training is mandatory in certain circumstances but can be really beneficial in others. This ...
  • Finding the right course for you
    Our Admin Lead and Marketing Specialist, Flick, gives her advice about finding the right course for you… “How do I find the right course for me?” I hear this a lot! There are so many courses available out there it can often feel like finding a needle in a haystack. Don’t worry. We’ve got a magnet to ...
  • 2020 A Year in Hindsight
    Where to begin? We can’t say that 2020 wasn’t a shocking year for all of us, but who would have thought this time last year that it would have turned out the way it did?! We certainly didn’t. In fact, this time last year we were very hopeful that we would be able to continue delivering ...
  • Learning at Home the easy way
    Those of you who are observant will notice that we didn’t release a blog post in October. We’ll be honest, we were so busy with our new Digital Skills and Community Learning courses that our blog post got forgotten! However, we think this blog fits better in November after England has just gone into a ...
  • What courses do we provide?
    What different training courses do we offer? Over the past couple of months, we have introduced you to Enable and our colleagues. We have mentioned a few of the courses which we currently offer to businesses and individuals in the UK. This month we thought it would be a good idea to expand on that in ...
  • Meet the Team
    In our first blog post we introduced you to Enable as a business; where we started, how we got to where we are… but now we feel that it’s time for you to meet the team personally. We are a very personal charity and we like people to feel that they can come to us ...
  • Who are Enable? What do we do?
    As part of our new look (to go with our shiny new office) we have decided to start writing a blog to tell you more about us. We want you to get to know us better and learn all about Enable as a charity and as a business. There’s no better place to start than ...
  • Apprenticeships: The Answer to the Rudimentary Skills Shortage?

    Rebecca Ogden reflects on a recent conversation she had with an employer who wanted to recruit the ‘right type of person’ rather than being concerned about what qualifications they had. 

  • Inward Investment – who is really benefiting?
    Working across the East Midlands I get the opportunity to work within a number of different public sector governing organisations, supporting inward investment. With the emerging trend of marketing towns and cities, everyone wants businesses and people to settle in their area. Great, if you win the business there are meant to be all sorts ...
  • Apprenticeships – Meeting your organisational needs

    Last week we saw the 10th anniversary of National Apprenticeship Week, an initiative to raise the profile of apprenticeships and their benefits.

  • Understanding Your Own Organisation – The importance of strategic planning
    Over the past few weeks I have spent a lot of time with other organisations, either to explore partnership working or to support them in their work. Something I have found essential for this process to be effective is understanding and communicating succinctly what the organisation does and where it is going. You may think ...
  • Connectivity
    I should probably introduce myself, my name is Rebecca and I have recently been appointed to the position of Business Development Manager for Enable.
