Personal and social skills are highly important for all types of people in all walks of life. We interact with people constantly throughout life in our personal relationships, social relationships and professional relationships at work. One of the key skills in life is being able to communicate well with other people, no matter what the situation.
Personal and social skills such as time management, listening skills, problem solving and communication are also of high importance to most employers. You can complete this course on our interactive online learning platform, EQUAL, where your knowledge will be assessed through a series of short answer questions with no examinations.
