1. Professional Decluttering and Organising Business: Learn Decluttering And Organising A Business Professionaly

Most of us have clutter, whether it’s too many toys taking over the living room, wardrobes crammed with clothes we don’t wear or an office space that looks more like a half-finished papier-mâché project than a workspace. This is where the role of the professional declutterer comes in.

The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course will guide you through applying effective decluttering methods and creating storage solutions (including 2 video demonstrations). However, the primary purpose of this course is to show you how to make a business out of your skills and passion for organisation.

Upon successful completion of this course you will:

  • Know what it means to be a professional declutterer and understand the skillset required
  • Understand how to legally set up as a professional declutterer
  • Have the tools to create and execute an effective marketing plan
  • Know how to budget for your business
  • Be able to define exactly how you will work with clients
  • Be clear on what should be included in a client assessment visit
  • Be able to judge the length and cost of a decluttering project
  • Know what forms need to be included in your administrative toolbox

Have a clear knowledge of the different and most useful decluttering systems for both residential and business clients
You may already understand the role of a professional declutterer or you may not have known it was a possible career choice. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course begins by clearing up what it is to embody the role, the skillset required and even the pros and cons of the business. You’ll discover how clients can come to need a declutterer’s services and gain an insight into the difference between “normal” clutter and a hoarding issue, which should be treated differently.

To set up a business there are certain fundamentals that you need to be aware of and practices that you should follow to be successful. This course talks you through each of these, such as how to register as a business, understand your tax liabilities, the insurance types you’ll need as a professional declutterer and organiser and the rules on data protection. You’ll understand the importance of creating a business plan, how to manage budgets and cash flow, and learn about some of the organisations you can join as a professional declutterer.

It takes more than just a solid business plan and the ability to be a great professional declutterer to get your business off the ground. You need clients, and to gain clients you need to put time (and where possible, money) into marketing your business. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course will guide you through creating your business’ branding and marketing plan, which includes how to work out who your audience is, what the components of a good marketing plan are, how to organise a marketing budget and how to perform a SWOT analysis.

Part of your marketing plan will include deciding on the marketing tactics that you will use. This course explains the various tools you can use to give your business the exposure it needs and how to select the ones that will work for you. You will also learn how to create a marketing calendar and the importance of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of your marketing efforts.

With your planning in place, another important step to take is to define your business, as it may not be totally clear to a prospective client what you will be doing for them. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course guides you through how to define your relationship with your clients and identifies some of the issues that you may come across in this. You’ll also learn how to judge the length and cost of a project, what to incorporate in an assessment visit, and how to maintain a client relationship after the initial job has come to an end.

As a professional declutterer, you will need to develop documents and forms that will help you to keep on top of your administrative duties and create clarity between you and your client. This course talks you through the typical paperwork that you will need to use, as well as the physical tools that you will find useful in your work. The course also includes video content – guiding you through various storage solutions that you can advise clients to use and that you can adapt for specific client needs.

Along with business and marketing considerations, the Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course talks you through the practical methods and “decluttering systems” that you can implement to create order and structure for clients. You’ll be taken through how to assess a client’s situation, the solutions they need, and how to plan and implement these solutions. You will also learn how to help clients who have difficulty decluttering. The course includes an easy-to-consume video that guides you through implementing decluttering systems.

As a professional declutter you may wish to work specifically with business clients or even add this to your home-decluttering services. The needs of business clients are different, as it is a different kind clutter that accumulates. This course guides you the various methods that will need to use if you are to work with businesses and on how to minimise paper in an office environment – a big problem in both home and big business offices.

2. Project Management: Learn How To Be An Effective Project Manager

The role of a project manager is multifarious. You’ll lead teams on diverse projects – steering them from start to finish, elevate your career prospects and provide tangible value, adapt to changes and be constantly learning, never be bored in your job and be well-paid to do it. We’re going to help you get there with this incredibly detailed course, which examines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques you need to know to be an effective project manager.

The course introduces the subject by jumping straight into explaining the role of a project manager, the range of methodologies they use, and an outline of the processes and knowledge necessary to be successful. You’ll learn about approaches to project management, including the traditional approach, the PRINCE2 Process Model, and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), amongst others. You’ll be shown how to breakdown the lifecycle of a project into phases to give your efforts structure and simplify them into a series of logical and manageable steps.

You will learn about the concepts and tools, both manual and software-based, that effective project managers use to accomplish tasks and execute responsibilities, including how to use Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) and Gantt Charts. You’ll explore the various ways in which a project’s team is put together and organised depending on the requirements of the company and the project, the various typical roles within a team, and how to create a hierarchy of team members.

Having been shown briefly how to create a project life cycle in the introduction to the course, you are later shown this process in much greater depth. You’ll discover how every project is separated into five smaller processes or phases that are tailored to the needs of the project and which make up a project lifecycle. Each of these five processes is covered in incredible depth to give a comprehensive understanding of their purpose within the lifecycle. The phases discussed are Initiation and Planning, Processes: Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, Change Management, and Closure.

To ensure that the aim of a project is achieved as efficiently as is practicably possible requires proper coordination of processes and activities, this is known as Project Integration Management and is examined and described fully in this course. You’ll learn about what the role entails and the steps to take and processes to follow to be effective in the position and how to develop and incorporate and action and monitor a project management plan using proven methodologies.

Time, cost, and quality are a trio of variables that must be planned in from the beginning and tracked all the way through to the closure of a project, helping you to adjust resources as necessary throughout. The Project Management Course guides you through the tools and techniques used to ensure you stay on top of these important areas.

Critical to the success of any project and the most important resource at your disposal, is the people working on it – the project team. Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard. One of the biggest downfalls of projects is not considering and preparing for any risks that will inevitably arise. You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.

Who would benefit from the course?

Aimed at those looking to gain a career in project management, this course outlines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques necessary to be effective in the role. Studying this course will provide you with a foundation of knowledge and the confidence to go onto study for project management-specific qualifications, such as PRINCE2 Foundation and APM RPP.

If you are currently working in a specialised and/or managerial role, you can use the skills and knowledge gained from this course to drastically improve your ability to manage projects within your role.

3. Marketing and PR for Small Businesses: Take These First Steps To Move Your Small Business Forward

The Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course simplifies the learning process with easy-to-understand, straightforward, and useful techniques that you can apply to your business straight away; ensuring straightforward your own strategies, with actionable tactics and results that you can evaluate, build and learn from.

Most small businesses are the manifestation of a dream. The business owner behind them dreams of being their own boss or selling a service or product in which they truly believe. They might be setting up a home business to supplement a low-paying day job, or they may have seen a gap in the market and took the plunge to plug it with an idea that excites them so much they can barely sleep at night.

Rarely does someone go into business because they want to spend hours figuring out ways to persuade customers to engage with them, buy from them, or even notice them. They want to set out their stall and let the success just happen.

In the real world, it doesn’t work that way. In the real world the most critical skills any business, small, medium-sized or otherwise, can have is their ability to communicate – and that, essentially, comes down to marketing and PR. No matter how original or special a small business’s product or service is, without any marketing and PR efforts they will not succeed.

The reason for this is straightforward. Through marketing and PR your product or service has a chance to be promoted to and discovered by potential clients. Without it, those same clients won’t hear about your business. They won’t be able to purchase what you’re offering, and your business will not be able to make sales and will probably close.

It sounds drastic, but the truth is that half of all small businesses fail within the first five years. While this is a gloomy statistic it can also be used to highlight an important fact: No matter what your business is, marketing and PR can make all the difference between rising up or falling flat.

This Marketing and PR for Small Businesses home study course is thus designed to guide new small business owners (or those thinking about starting their own venture) through the simple steps of how to communicate about their products or services to potential customers.

The course sets out to demystify exactly how a small business can benefit from these two disciplines and offers clear choices on the different marketing and PR tactics that businesses employ today.

Managing marketing and PR is not rocket science. However, it does take time, thought, commitment and a little creativity to incorporate it into your overall business structure and action plan.

In the comfort of your home and in your own time, you can then use this course to become familiar with the principles of marketing and PR and to start developing your individual strategy.

Understanding just how vital marketing and PR are to your burgeoning small business and its future is crucial, but with these first steps, your business is already moving forward.

Who would benefit from the course?

For those who are setting up their own business or have an established business but would like to grow or is struggling to achieve what you had hoped, the Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course is essential.

Those who already work within the marketing and PR industries or are interested in doing so will also learn a lot here, as the course provides a wealth of information and tips.

4. Social Media Marketing: Learn How To Create A Multi-Platform Social Media Marketing Strategy

This course will teach you how to create a multi-platform Social Media Marketing strategy which engages your audience, developing and leveraging trust, authenticity and advocacy, whilst delivering a favourable return on investment.

You will discover how social media differs from traditional marketing and PR activities. The course explains how these differences can be utilised to create stronger customer relationships, and how specific, measurable goals can be set and reached. One important difference, which the course covers extensively, is the Consumer Feedback Cycle which can have an impact on the growth of a business and affect change.

Recognising the need to have a social media strategy in place is one thing but creating a targeted, goal-led strategy, is another. The Social Media Marketing Certificate Course explains, in detail, how to go about creating an effective content marketing plan and social media strategy, the effectiveness of which you can track, measure and improve.

The course explains how social media audits and customer profiling should determine how you use social media and help you to identify which platforms are best for your business. To ensure you have considered all the options, this course takes an in-depth look at each of the Top 50 social media platforms. Along with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+, the course also looks at some of the smaller and more niche platforms. It also explains how to go about using a number of platforms for a single objective and how to simplify the process of managing multiple platforms.

Who would benefit from the course?

Social media can play a valuable role in the promotion of any organisation, business, product or event. Whether you've never used social media for business before, run campaigns that have not brought the returns you had hoped for or are planning to start a career in this area, the Social Media Marketing Certificate Course has something to teach you.

1. Professional Decluttering and Organising Business: Learn Decluttering And Organising A Business Professionaly

Most of us have clutter, whether it’s too many toys taking over the living room, wardrobes crammed with clothes we don’t wear or an office space that looks more like a half-finished papier-mâché project than a workspace. This is where the role of the professional declutterer comes in.

The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course will guide you through applying effective decluttering methods and creating storage solutions (including 2 video demonstrations). However, the primary purpose of this course is to show you how to make a business out of your skills and passion for organisation.

Upon successful completion of this course you will:

  • Know what it means to be a professional declutterer and understand the skillset required
  • Understand how to legally set up as a professional declutterer
  • Have the tools to create and execute an effective marketing plan
  • Know how to budget for your business
  • Be able to define exactly how you will work with clients
  • Be clear on what should be included in a client assessment visit
  • Be able to judge the length and cost of a decluttering project
  • Know what forms need to be included in your administrative toolbox

Have a clear knowledge of the different and most useful decluttering systems for both residential and business clients
You may already understand the role of a professional declutterer or you may not have known it was a possible career choice. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course begins by clearing up what it is to embody the role, the skillset required and even the pros and cons of the business. You’ll discover how clients can come to need a declutterer’s services and gain an insight into the difference between “normal” clutter and a hoarding issue, which should be treated differently.

To set up a business there are certain fundamentals that you need to be aware of and practices that you should follow to be successful. This course talks you through each of these, such as how to register as a business, understand your tax liabilities, the insurance types you’ll need as a professional declutterer and organiser and the rules on data protection. You’ll understand the importance of creating a business plan, how to manage budgets and cash flow, and learn about some of the organisations you can join as a professional declutterer.

It takes more than just a solid business plan and the ability to be a great professional declutterer to get your business off the ground. You need clients, and to gain clients you need to put time (and where possible, money) into marketing your business. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course will guide you through creating your business’ branding and marketing plan, which includes how to work out who your audience is, what the components of a good marketing plan are, how to organise a marketing budget and how to perform a SWOT analysis.

Part of your marketing plan will include deciding on the marketing tactics that you will use. This course explains the various tools you can use to give your business the exposure it needs and how to select the ones that will work for you. You will also learn how to create a marketing calendar and the importance of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of your marketing efforts.

With your planning in place, another important step to take is to define your business, as it may not be totally clear to a prospective client what you will be doing for them. The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course guides you through how to define your relationship with your clients and identifies some of the issues that you may come across in this. You’ll also learn how to judge the length and cost of a project, what to incorporate in an assessment visit, and how to maintain a client relationship after the initial job has come to an end.

As a professional declutterer, you will need to develop documents and forms that will help you to keep on top of your administrative duties and create clarity between you and your client. This course talks you through the typical paperwork that you will need to use, as well as the physical tools that you will find useful in your work. The course also includes video content – guiding you through various storage solutions that you can advise clients to use and that you can adapt for specific client needs.

Along with business and marketing considerations, the Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course talks you through the practical methods and “decluttering systems” that you can implement to create order and structure for clients. You’ll be taken through how to assess a client’s situation, the solutions they need, and how to plan and implement these solutions. You will also learn how to help clients who have difficulty decluttering. The course includes an easy-to-consume video that guides you through implementing decluttering systems.

As a professional declutter you may wish to work specifically with business clients or even add this to your home-decluttering services. The needs of business clients are different, as it is a different kind clutter that accumulates. This course guides you the various methods that will need to use if you are to work with businesses and on how to minimise paper in an office environment – a big problem in both home and big business offices.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

The Professional Decluttering and Organising Business Certificate Course is aimed at those who have a passion for decluttering and setting up organisational systems and wish to concretise and use this unique skill set to create and market a successful business.

Anyone looking to declutter their own space and implement systems to keep it tidy and organised will also find the course useful, as the course explains how to achieve this.

2. Project Management: Learn How To Be An Effective Project Manager

The role of a project manager is multifarious. You’ll lead teams on diverse projects – steering them from start to finish, elevate your career prospects and provide tangible value, adapt to changes and be constantly learning, never be bored in your job and be well-paid to do it. We’re going to help you get there with this incredibly detailed course, which examines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques you need to know to be an effective project manager.

The course introduces the subject by jumping straight into explaining the role of a project manager, the range of methodologies they use, and an outline of the processes and knowledge necessary to be successful. You’ll learn about approaches to project management, including the traditional approach, the PRINCE2 Process Model, and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), amongst others. You’ll be shown how to breakdown the lifecycle of a project into phases to give your efforts structure and simplify them into a series of logical and manageable steps.

You will learn about the concepts and tools, both manual and software-based, that effective project managers use to accomplish tasks and execute responsibilities, including how to use Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) and Gantt Charts. You’ll explore the various ways in which a project’s team is put together and organised depending on the requirements of the company and the project, the various typical roles within a team, and how to create a hierarchy of team members.

Having been shown briefly how to create a project life cycle in the introduction to the course, you are later shown this process in much greater depth. You’ll discover how every project is separated into five smaller processes or phases that are tailored to the needs of the project and which make up a project lifecycle. Each of these five processes is covered in incredible depth to give a comprehensive understanding of their purpose within the lifecycle. The phases discussed are Initiation and Planning, Processes: Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, Change Management, and Closure.

To ensure that the aim of a project is achieved as efficiently as is practicably possible requires proper coordination of processes and activities, this is known as Project Integration Management and is examined and described fully in this course. You’ll learn about what the role entails and the steps to take and processes to follow to be effective in the position and how to develop and incorporate and action and monitor a project management plan using proven methodologies.

Time, cost, and quality are a trio of variables that must be planned in from the beginning and tracked all the way through to the closure of a project, helping you to adjust resources as necessary throughout. The Project Management Course guides you through the tools and techniques used to ensure you stay on top of these important areas.

Critical to the success of any project and the most important resource at your disposal, is the people working on it – the project team. Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard. One of the biggest downfalls of projects is not considering and preparing for any risks that will inevitably arise. You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.

Who would benefit from the course?

Aimed at those looking to gain a career in project management, this course outlines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques necessary to be effective in the role. Studying this course will provide you with a foundation of knowledge and the confidence to go onto study for project management-specific qualifications, such as PRINCE2 Foundation and APM RPP.

If you are currently working in a specialised and/or managerial role, you can use the skills and knowledge gained from this course to drastically improve your ability to manage projects within your role.

3. Marketing and PR for Small Businesses: Take These First Steps To Move Your Small Business Forward

The Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course simplifies the learning process with easy-to-understand, straightforward, and useful techniques that you can apply to your business straight away; ensuring straightforward your own strategies, with actionable tactics and results that you can evaluate, build and learn from.

Most small businesses are the manifestation of a dream. The business owner behind them dreams of being their own boss or selling a service or product in which they truly believe. They might be setting up a home business to supplement a low-paying day job, or they may have seen a gap in the market and took the plunge to plug it with an idea that excites them so much they can barely sleep at night.

Rarely does someone go into business because they want to spend hours figuring out ways to persuade customers to engage with them, buy from them, or even notice them. They want to set out their stall and let the success just happen.

In the real world, it doesn’t work that way. In the real world the most critical skills any business, small, medium-sized or otherwise, can have is their ability to communicate – and that, essentially, comes down to marketing and PR. No matter how original or special a small business’s product or service is, without any marketing and PR efforts they will not succeed.

The reason for this is straightforward. Through marketing and PR your product or service has a chance to be promoted to and discovered by potential clients. Without it, those same clients won’t hear about your business. They won’t be able to purchase what you’re offering, and your business will not be able to make sales and will probably close.

It sounds drastic, but the truth is that half of all small businesses fail within the first five years. While this is a gloomy statistic it can also be used to highlight an important fact: No matter what your business is, marketing and PR can make all the difference between rising up or falling flat.

This Marketing and PR for Small Businesses home study course is thus designed to guide new small business owners (or those thinking about starting their own venture) through the simple steps of how to communicate about their products or services to potential customers.

The course sets out to demystify exactly how a small business can benefit from these two disciplines and offers clear choices on the different marketing and PR tactics that businesses employ today.

Managing marketing and PR is not rocket science. However, it does take time, thought, commitment and a little creativity to incorporate it into your overall business structure and action plan.

In the comfort of your home and in your own time, you can then use this course to become familiar with the principles of marketing and PR and to start developing your individual strategy.

Understanding just how vital marketing and PR are to your burgeoning small business and its future is crucial, but with these first steps, your business is already moving forward.

Who would benefit from the course?

For those who are setting up their own business or have an established business but would like to grow or is struggling to achieve what you had hoped, the Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course is essential.

Those who already work within the marketing and PR industries or are interested in doing so will also learn a lot here, as the course provides a wealth of information and tips.

4. Social Media Marketing: Learn How To Create A Multi-Platform Social Media Marketing Strategy

This course will teach you how to create a multi-platform Social Media Marketing strategy which engages your audience, developing and leveraging trust, authenticity and advocacy, whilst delivering a favourable return on investment.

The Social Media Marketing Certificate Course is separated into 2 distinct areas. The 1st tells you about social media itself and how to approach it from a marketing perspective, the 2nd looks at several platforms individually and explains the business benefits of each. You will learn how and why businesses large and small can use social media marketing to reach and engage with their target markets.

You will discover how social media differs from traditional marketing and PR activities. The course explains how these differences can be utilised to create stronger customer relationships, and how specific, measurable goals can be set and reached. One important difference, which the course covers extensively, is the Consumer Feedback Cycle which can have an impact on the growth of a business and affect change.

Recognising the need to have a social media strategy in place is one thing but creating a targeted, goal-led strategy, is another. The Social Media Marketing Certificate Course explains, in detail, how to go about creating an effective content marketing plan and social media strategy, the effectiveness of which you can track, measure and improve.

The course explains how social media audits and customer profiling should determine how you use social media and help you to identify which platforms are best for your business. To ensure you have considered all the options, this course takes an in-depth look at each of the Top 50 social media platforms. Along with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+, the course also looks at some of the smaller and more niche platforms. It also explains how to go about using a number of platforms for a single objective and how to simplify the process of managing multiple platforms.

Who would benefit from the course?

Social media can play a valuable role in the promotion of any organisation, business, product or event. Whether you've never used social media for business before, run campaigns that have not brought the returns you had hoped for or are planning to start a career in this area, the Social Media Marketing Certificate Course has something to teach you.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn how to create effective, measurable social media marketing strategies on the most appropriate platforms for their target audience.

9. Excel: From Fundamental To Advanced In Microsoft Excel

The Excel Course offers an extensive overview of Microsoft Excel, from the fundamentals to the most advanced features, and teaches by getting students to work in the software package as they progress through the course; presenting exercises related to what has been taught.

Though it has been around for over a quarter of a century, Microsoft Excel is still one of the most important and popular pieces of software used in the modern workplace. Easy to use and highly functional, it integrates easily with other Microsoft Office programmes (the suite of which itself is the most widely used programme set available) and is the spreadsheet programme of choice across the globe.

The course uses Excel 2013 for Windows, though Excel 2016 was released at the end of 2015.

If you are completely new to Excel, then it can seem quite daunting when you first open the programme. Students will become comfortable navigating around the Excel environment easily and efficiently

The Excel Course teaches the basic skills needed to use the programme, and lays the foundations for further knowledge imparted throughout the course

You will learn how to format spreadsheets, not just for aesthetic reasons (though good formatting can certainly have that affect) but to ensure data is organised in a clear and comprehensible way, so that it is immediately accessible to other users. You will be guided through the various formatting tools; being shown how to work effectively with fonts, colours, borders and patterns, as well as managing the size and content of your cells

10. Team Leadership and Motivation: Learn The Information And Tools Needed To Forge Your Own Path

The Team Leadership and Motivation Certificate Course provides the information and tools needed to forge your own path and create your own ideas of what makes a great leader, whilst being backed up by a foundation of knowledge from those who have gone before you.

The Team Leadership and Motivation Certificate Course deals with the ‘what’. To give a better understanding of what leadership actually is, as well as how it differs to management, this module introduces the concept of leadership and being a leader; discussing definition and purpose.

The study of leadership is a historic one but this said, it is not one that never gets stagnant, as changes in society and the challenges faced by leaders, demand constant evolution of theories and practices. You will learn the history of leadership theories as well as the different types of leadership.

The course hones in on the more specific and simplified categories or frameworks of leadership, known as ‘leadership styles’. These ways of behaving, often guided by a leader’s own aims and personality are discussed at length; giving insight into how no style is ‘better’ than another but could be more fitting to a particular situation and how it can be necessary to switch leadership styles as circumstances demand.

We look at motivation and how to motivate is one of the most important things to understand, to be an effective leader. You will learn the definition of motivation, the conditions that support or impede it, its relationship to leadership, and how to use it in the workplace.

Being a leader is not for everyone and is certainly not for the faint of heart. They are responsible for developing vision, leading and motivating diverse groups of people, facing daily personal issues and managing the problems and expectations of others too, taking on company responsibilities to enhance productivity and achieve growth, and keeping up with technological and cultural changes, and this is before attending to the ever-growing to-do list.

Who would benefit from the course?

Whether you would like a leadership role or are currently in one but would like to perform better, the Team Leadership and Motivation Certificate Course provides all the information and tools of those who have succeeded before you, allowing you to use this foundation of knowledge to fulfil the role in your own way, with confidence.
