This modular course of 12 units has been specifically designed to support those about to leave education, individuals who are searching for work or starting their first job roles, it is also suitable for those who have started a new job and are finding it hard to fit in. It gives the students key workplace skills that are not taught in education but are a key requirement of management. Unfortunately, business leaders and their senior people do not have the time they used to have in developing young people to fit into the organisation. Managers have to develop the specific skills of new starters to perform in their roles, but it is the other key elements of team-working, fitting culturally, influencing others, communication, conflict management, etc, the crucial 'soft skills' that most education leavers lack. The qualification and skills they have achieved in education and in their exams are a given, that's the tasks they will perform i.e. the easier bit to develop people in. The teaching of interpersonal and other soft skills are not normally part of a managers remit. These 12 modules will ensure you have the basic skill sets required to firstly gain a role by demonstrating the skills at an interview and then to fit quickly into any organisation and impress. No previous knowledge is required for any of the modules, the training primarily lectures, but with the option of asking a question. For 3 of the modules; C.V. writing, Interview skills and presentation skills, individual (one-to-one) classes will be available to design a personal C.V. or presentation, or to prepare for a specific job interview. Details of these will be given at the end of each of those modules. The 12 modules comprise of: 1. C.V. development 2. Interview skills 3. Understanding and fitting into a culture 4. Understanding your own personality and your potential strengths 5. Effective team working 6. Creativity and problem solving 7. Influencing others where you have no authority 8. Workplace communication skills 9. Managing conflict with others 10. Supporting your manager 11. Basic presentation skills 12. Time management and personal organisation skills
At the end of this course, students will receive a certificate from Leading National Training highlighting the modules they have successfully attended. This can be attached to your C.V.s when applying for a position, highlighting to potential employers that you have the 'key' skills required by the people that will manage you. It can also be used to support your potential advancement in your existing role/company.
Philip has had the benefit of working within the corporate arena and for the education sectors, in the UK and across Eastern and Western Europe, this includes running successful talent development programmes for young graduates. Philip also has existing businesses both in India and across Russian speaking countries, he, therefore, has a 'real-time' understanding of firstly, what managers require of new starters straight from education, and an in-depth understanding of the challenge's students face when entering the workplace for the first time.

About Me

I currently run a freelance global business consultancy and people development practice, after a successful career in the corporate arena whilst operating across many business sectors as the mainboard director in sales, operations and project management. I currently run two successful online platforms, one which is in India and the other across all Russian speaking countries.

My fields of expertise and those which will be my focus on the Learned Live platform, fall into three development areas, firstly, working with 18 to 24-year-olds who are about to leave education and take on their new roles, as this is a specific requirement which managers in 2020 are highlighting as key. This will include such skills as team-working, working with managers, conflict in the workplace, presentation skills and innovation, to name a few.

Secondly, I will be working with existing managers and teams in developing leadership, influencing skills, cross-functional team working, sales and negotiation skills and coaching.

Finally, strategic planning in three areas; for start-ups who have great ideas but are not sure how to implement them, for SME’s who have grown to a certain size and now need fresh direction, and finally, existing corporates who are dealing with challenging times and need to adjust their strategy, culture and ways of thinking.

My style of teaching has been described as fast-paced but easy to follow, dynamic, using real-life scenarios and memorable (the critical bit). I look forward to working with the clients on the Learned.Live platform and sharing my knowledge and expertise.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time.
