    No. Unlike many other training companies, we maintain strict client confidentiality and will never discuss a client’s training with another company. We guarantee client confidentiality. Our client list is never sent out, or published anywhere (including our website).

  8. What happens during Ramadan with Public Course timings?
    During Ramadan, we take into account the needs of Muslim delegates – with different timings applying. We start our courses earlier and shorten the day, by cutting the length of breaks. This shortens the day, but still ensures that 6.5 contact hours are delivered on our courses.
  9. What happens after I make an online booking for a Public Course?
    One of our Business Development people will get in touch with you after we receive your online booking to confirm your place on the course.

  10. How are your Public Training Courses delivered?
    Our courses are highly interactive and take into account delegates’ different learning styles. There are tutor-led discussions, group work, individual presentations, experiential role plays, individual assessments, etc. In some cases DVD recordings are also made and played back to delegates.

    The Public Course investment includes the following:
    – A top quality delegate manual.
    – Handouts and other training material.

    Before selecting venues for Public or In-company training, our Admin. Staff inspects them to ensure they are up to the professional standard we require. It is important to choose venues that create a memorable learning experience for delegates.
  14. If I have other questions what should I do?
    Please contact us to ask to speak to one of our Business Development Managers who will be pleased to answer any additional queries you may have.

What will be covered?

The job market continues to change, as does the way we look for work. This course will examine the value of presenting yourself as a complete package by using a resume as an introduction to an employer, backed up by a portfolio presented at an interview. In order to make the most of this course, participants need to have recently completed the Getting Your Job Search Started workshop, or have identified target positions as well as completed a full skill assessment and goal setting exercise.

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants:

  • How to describe themselves in descriptive language
  • What the essential elements of cover letters and resumes are
  • All about the need for pre-employment testing, and what to expect in their target market
  • How to design a personalized portfolio
  • How to develop a plan that moves them to a new job within 60 days

Introduction and Course Overview
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

Who are You?
To begin the day, participants will review their strengths and skills and how to use language to sell themselves.

Writing the Resume

The Portfolio
