1. Introduction to Business English
Business English is something you will use in almost every work environment. This course will teach you how to communicate on a professional level, the language and register you should use. These skills will be helpful for your entire career, no matter where you go.
2. Information management
Organising the information you work with on a daily basis is crucial. You need to keep a structure, filing away certain things for later use, documenting everything to keep track. You will learn all of this and more in this subject.
3. Managing incoming information
Incoming information is everything that is delivered or provided to you, by others. This can be anything from client emails, a colleague’s work they share, or a manager’s critiques. Learning how to manage this info can help you to get a better grip of the day’s work, as well as assist you in keeping track of everything that has been said and done.
4. Managing outgoing information
Outgoing information is all the things you share, send, speak, and write to other people. Sending an work update email to your boss, reporting on a development in a project, sending out a work schedule, etc. all fall in this category. By keeping track of the things you send, helps you to manage your workflow and sticking to your schedule.
5. Time management
Learning how to manage your time is one of the best possible skills you can have in any working environment. Allocating time to certain projects, making sure you have enough room for flexibility and completing tasks by a specific deadline are all a part of this.
6. Organising time
While managing your time, you automatically organise it into sections. This can help you when working on complicated projects, or while working on a lot of different things at the same time. You organise and coordinate your efforts to make sure you get to everything that needs to be done.
7. Coordinating time with others
When working on group projects, you must be able to set up a flexible schedule with your team, and stick to it. When working together like this, you are able to concentrate your efforts with your fellows, completing the task at hand much more efficiently.
8. Team time management
When you find yourself in the position to work with a team, you need to be able to effectively manage their time as well as your own. If this is done right, a project will run smoothly and meet its deadlines. Time management with your team is critical to reaching the goals that have been set out.
Skills Academy will require you to complete the recommended assignments. The assignments are designed to help you through your learning to make sure that you completely understand all the topics covered and that you can apply this to your working environment. There are absolutely no exams for this course.
You will be awarded a Skills Academy Subject Certificate in E-mail Etiquette Short Course.
