If you want to improve your chance of gaining work in this difficult climate, then the WorkSkills Plus Programme at Concorde International could be the course for you.
The aim of the course is to develop the ‘ABC’ of employability requested by companies: Attitude in the workplace, Behaviour in the workplace and Communication in the workplace.
The WorkSkills Plus programme is open to students aged 18 and above from Great Britain and the EU. The course fully develops your English Language and general workplace skills. It offers flexible units of study that can be adapted to meet the expectations of particular employers.
EU students can then take an optional work experience placement in the UK on completion of their course. The length of the placement can be flexible and is available in areas such as finance, accounts and administration.
The WorkSkills Plus course is fully accredited and is on the National Qualifications Framework. It can be taken either as a BTEC Award (6 credits); a BTEC Certificate (18 credits); and is highly valued by employers in different industries.
The programme improves general English Language ability and covers BTEC units including Personal Life Skills; Sustainable Employability Skills; Work Placement Skills; and Skills for Business.
Course units include practical modules on CV writing, job applications in Britain, critical thinking, self-motivation, negotiation and persuasion skills, project management and entrepreneurship skills.
For those who complete the BTEC course – there is an Edexcel Award or Certificate – both qualifications are recognised by British employers.
