Workskills Plus course

This course fully complies with the new visa regulations instituted in March 2010 by British immigration authorities UKBA.

This course is designed to give users a set of functional and ’soft skills’ in preparation for the world of work, and offers an optional work experience placement at the end of the course. 

It will offer practical sessions on how to make the transition from being a student to becoming ‘work-ready’ for a placement in a British company or for future career development.

This is not abstract theory – you will be equipped at the end of a course with a well presented CV, a strategy for succeeding at interviews.

Typically ‘Personal Life skills’ tutorials will focus on:

  • career development planning or progression
  • drafting & writing the best CV possible
  • concentrating on interview techniques
  • strategies for confident presentations

‘Workskills/Employability skills’ tutorials will relate to expectations of employers:

  • good communication skills;
  • positive attitudes & behaviours at work; teamwork/ interpersonal social skills
  • problem-solving; multi-tasking
  • IT literacy
  • setting & meeting targets; work/time management

For those who complete the BTEC course – there is an Edexcel Award or Certificate – both qualifications are recognised by British employers.
