Introduction to the program. Skills for the 21st-century workplace
Have you got the skills you need for the 21st-century workplace?
Beyond hard skills and formal qualifications employers are often concerned about the lack of transversal competences that current employees (or prospective new hires) need to perform various tasks successfully. Better and more sophisticated competences will bring greater autonomy, together with the ability for self-management and handle work load, leading to a more balanced and healthy life for the participants. Moreover, the project will promote better working patterns in the partner institutions, contributing to the improvement of the offered services with a huge positive impact on students and their families.
