English Language Prep for the Workplace
In the workplace, communication is the key. Productive relationships in the workplace are built on understanding one another. When communication gaps occur from dissimilarities in language for non-native speakers, it creates both a barrier of understanding and a barrier to success. This course helps students with intermediate competency in the English language to succeed in using English as a second language in their workplace. Students will practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing speech with a clear intent to attain mastery.
Safety In The Workplace
Workplace accidents and injuries cost corporations millions of dollars each year. They also have a profound impact on workers. Establishing a safety culture in the organization is essential. By creating a mindset of safety and security, it encourages more loyalty and creates a healthy work environment. This course allows participants to build a safety culture within the organization.
People see conflict as a negative experience. But, conflict is a part of personal growth and development. Channeling conflict productively into negotiations can help to improve work relationships and business relationships.

In today’s workplace, leadership is a premium skill that employers look for. Even in entry-level positions, leadership skills can allow candidates to stand out from the pack. Leadership skills mean consistency as much as performance. Being able to set the right expectations with employers and deliver on these expectations is critical in every position. Our course will help participants learn practical leadership skills that they can apply every day. Through consistent demonstrations of leadership, our students thrive in their workplace.
At the heart of project management, is the concept of breaking down projects into bite-sized pieces and managing each milestone to completion. Students who don’t have real-world experience, often struggle to perform in the workplace. Our course is designed to help our students breakdown their daily work no matter how difficult the tasks are, by creating a map and a schedule to enable them to see these tasks to completion. Our students learn that project management is about managing their own success.
