Powering up soft skills: preparing your students for an international workplace
Effective use of all workplace competencies begins with good communication skills. As the global language of business and research, it is widely accepted that the ability to communicate effectively in English is now a basic employability skill. With Covid-19 continuing to reshape the future of how and where we work, the latest research suggests that soft skills have never been more valued by employers.

In this session, we will explore how Covid-19 has impacted the hiring priorities of employers and how this has placed a new spotlight on soft skills. We will consider the extent to which communication skills underpin a broader set of workplace competencies, and we will share some tools and approaches that teachers can use to embed the development of soft skills in a language learning environment.
