We live in a demanding, competitive and globalised society. Linguistic ability, while being the cornerstone both of successful studies and a rewarding professional life, must be enhanced by transferable skills such as effective communication and presentation, higher order thinking, problem solving and well-expressed, substantiated argument. At IMEC, we understand that, in order to be prepared for a world undergoing quantum change and exponential growth, students must be confidently equipped with both academic knowledge and soft skills.
On average a potential employer spends 6 seconds when perusing each CV for a short-list of candidates, and judgments on applicants at the interview stage may be made within 20 seconds. The skills required to produce the best impression and the greatest impact are often not innate - they have to be acquired through training which, at IMEC, we provide.
Maybe you have just left school and are seeking your first position, or you are about to face the rigours of university. Are you a professional seeking to climb the ladder, or a teacher seeking to maximise your own students’ potential? Possibly you have the language skills but need to refine your thinking skills and response when faced with challenging situations. Whatever your needs IMEC will listen to you and find the best courses for you – professionally planned and professionally delivered –so that that demanding globalised society does not seem so demanding any more.
