Five steps to the right continuing education

  1. Location: Where do I stand, what makes me tick? If necessary, do a career counselling, location assessment or coaching.
  2. Goal, based on the assessment: What do I want to achieve with the training? Learn something new, go in a different direction or climb the career ladder? Do I want to improve my qualifications, specialise in a particular field, expand my competences?
  3. Resources: How much time can I devote? Is CET compatible with work, family and financial commitments?
  4. Offers: Which offers fit my goals and resources? Are the venues easily accessible in terms of time?
  5. Personal clarifications: Talk to the person responsible for continuing education, at information events - but also with superiors - about the time and financial requirements.
