FREE Workshops for Your Professional Development

At UKCBC we provide Professional Development Workshops, at no extra charge, throughout your time of study at UKCBC in addition to our main accredited programmes. During these sessions students are able to improve their English language, academic and employability skills.

We provide support to our students, enabling them to develop the necessary skills to meet the standards required for their programme of study. We also endeavour to prepare students for the working environment. The professional development sessions enable students to improve their skills, understand the business sector worldwide, and discover more about the real challenges faced in the working environment.

The workshops enable students to share knowledge, expand on their skills and stimulate new ideas. Such opportunities can enhance their skills and effectiveness as well as helping to establish and reach their individualised targets, which get reflected in their career goals.
