Life skills school
What are Life skills?
The interaction of globalization, technological development and changes in the organisation of work has resulted in the demand for higher and different skills. Skills have become increasingly important in determining an individual's ability to secure a job, retain employment and move flexibly in the labour market. Today's world of work calls for individuals who are able to flexibly acquire, adapt, apply and transfer their knowledge to different contexts and under varying technological conditions, and to respond independently and creatively. What is especially important is that skills within these modules will strengthen the psychological status of target groups, their persistence in searching for a job; it will also help them find and keep a job. These courses will teach the participants how, where and when is most efficient to search for a job and they are directly focused on acquiring job search skills.
Our trainers, some of whom are certified by the British Institute CIPD, and others are psychologists and psychotherapists of different therapeutic orientations, offer the following programs:
- Recognition and analyses of individual potentials
Training in recognition and analysis of individual potentials is application of cognitive science to Human Resource management. The goal of this module is to enhance the efficiency of individuals, groups and firms.
- Personal development - career planning
The course will enable participants to critically assess the role of self-development in people-management and HR processes. The research evidence for the effectiveness of self-help methods will also be covered.
- Self management
The underlying premise in self-management programme was that individuals who need to change are more likely to succeed if they are in control of the change process. When people take charge of their own change program, they are more likely to feel efficacious, and change should be more lasting than if they feel that someone else is in charge.
- Communication skills - assertive training
Assertion means standing up for what you want, stating your needs clearly. It means expressing opposition. It means confrontation and it takes courage. Assertiveness training courses and workshops can help delegates increase work effectiveness and productivity, achieve greater control of their daily activities and overcome work stressors.
- Communication skills - presentation
This course will be focused on giving participants the confidence to use the skills and practical tools needed when preparing and delivering a clear, memorable presentation. It will boost participants' effectiveness and enable them to feel positive when presenting.
- Communication skills - written communication and CV writing
This module will help participants to establish 'good practice' with emails, letters and reports and CV writing.
