FREE Workshops for Your Professional Development
At UKCBC we provide Professional Development Workshops, at no extra charge, as part of our pre-course induction programme, in addition to our main accredited programmes. During these sessions students are able to improve their English language, academic and employability skills, as well as gain extra knowledge in planning and writing assignments for their main course of study.
We believe that professional development is essential to reach the standard of excellence we demand within our learning environment. We strive to provide our students with the needed support to equip our students with the necessary skills and standards to meet the performance expectations. 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.
Topics Covered in our Professional Development Workshop:
- Use of English by non-native speakers
- Challenges in business communication
- Global management and leadership
- How to adapt to a new culture for effective personal and business interactions
- Emotional intelligence
- Business or organisational hierarchy
- How to build practical skills for influencing others
- How to address difficult situations in the workplace
In addition to the topics covered in the workshops, students are able to make their suggestions and contributions. The student representatives can interact with the course co-ordinators and tutors and suggest topics of interest to be covered during development sessions.
The professional development team will give emphasis to the topics suggested by the students, evaluating outcomes and providing extra educational programmes based on the relevance of any areas of interest.
