The Skills You Need Shop

Our web content is free to view and to browse. We know that you, our readers, value this resource, and we have no plans to change what we do.

But we also know that there are times when you would like something more.

For example:

  • Sometimes you can’t be online, but you want to read about how you can improve your skills;
  • You want a way of bringing pages together in one place, to make it easier to cross-reference; or
  • You want to make notes about progress towards your skills-related goals.

In response to feedback, we have therefore started to produce eBooks that combine some of our most popular content with new ideas and tips.

From this page, you can navigate to our subject-specific shop pages and browse our selection of information and workbooks, then buy and download to read at your leisure.
