I have recently been promoted to a managerial position at work; my company does not provide adequate training for Managers, but I take my personal development seriously as I am keen to develop some Managerial Skills. Can I register on my own or do I have to go through my company?

I have recently come across a poster for a course tagged “Making Great Executives” that your school will be offering. Upon enquiry, I was told that this course will initially teach Business Etiquette Skills. Will this form part of a series of soft skills to be taught or is this course a stand-alone course?

Business Etiquette Skills is one of four courses that forms the “Making Great Executive Series” (Business Etiquette Skills, Delivering Effective Business Presentations, Building and Managing Effective Teams and Introduction to Financial Management).  The aim of this program is to develop soft skills which are very important to navigate everyday activities in your professional career. In the business world, excellent interpersonal skills are key to the success of every business and individual. For each course under our “Making Great Executive Series”, you will receive a Certificate with the title of the course you have completed. Once you have completed the program you will receive a full Certificate indicating that you have completed the full program. Most of these courses will form part of our accredited training programs in the future.
