SKILLS FOR REMOTE WORKERS
Completed the very successful "Skills for Remote Workers" Online - Part-Time Course in conjunction with MSLETB, IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, the Regional Skills Forum, SOLAS and Grow Remote and now we are preparing for the next one.
We got excellent feedback with most participants finding the course content very relevant to improving skills and developing confidence for working in the remote environment. Participants also found that working with a coach/mentor helped them through aspects of the course and supported them in their learning journey. The course did not focus on digital skills only but allowed the participant to learn about communicating and working in a remote environment.
The personalised Career coaching sessions was an added bonus. The QQI L5 Customer service module they found helpful in regard to dealing with clients and customers, lots of new and updated information.
The feedback was that this course would be great for anyone who wishes to improve their digital skills and learn the features of Microsoft and Google relevant to the work from home environment.
We were delighted with the feedback and look forward to starting our next course starting July 7th, 2021. If you have any questions contact us:
