‘How to Succeed in the Global Workplace’ is a free course aimed at people preparing to enter the job market or in the early stages of their career.
The online training equips participants with the skills and techniques to communicate confidently, build relationships and make that all-important good first impression at work.
Perfect for students and graduates, it is also suitable for people returning to work after a career break or those who simply want to enhance their CV with skills for today’s global workplace.
Jointly developed by the British Council and the University of Sheffield, the course focuses on the essential skills employers worldwide require from new employees, including working across cultures, adapting to new environments, effective team-building, and creating rapport with colleagues and clients from different backgrounds.
The training also draws upon the tools and techniques used in the British Council’s Intercultural Fluency Training, currently being delivered to professionals at all levels in international companies.
The course starts on 20 November 2017 and has three hours of online learning per week, over four weeks. Registration is now open for people worldwide.
Based in more than 100 countries, the British Council has been connecting people in the UK and worldwide for more than 80 years. The University of Sheffield is one of the world’s top 100 universities, recognised globally for its high-quality teaching and international outlook.
