While construction workers are typically well versed in the type of hands-on training and practical skills needed on site on a day to day basis, the softer, macro skills necessary for effective management often take a back seat.
When it comes to moving up the career ladder, practical skills need to be combined with these ‘soft’ skills.
Our short programmes covering soft skills have been designed to ensure that those who demonstrate the ambition to further their career prospects, can get the training they need to succeed.
In order to be considered for a management position, you need an understanding of the key skills to manage operations, lead a team and take on the responsibilities that will benefit the business of your employer.
Through these courses, you will learn how to identify a potential customer, plan and prepare for meetings with customers and establish what they want. You’ll learn how to obtain and assess information on projects that will enable you to assess the customer and guide them through the proposal stages, establishing any pitfalls and problems arising at each stage, to a formal agreement.
You will also learn how to establish the real value of each business prospect, ensuring that you don’t fall into the trap of representing the customer need at the expense of your company requirements.
