Providing you with the tools to succeed

We are excited to announce our new optional Soft Skills Sessions, developed and delivered by BPP's Professional Development Team and designed to provide additional training to our BPP Apprentices, to help develop your essential business skills.

The Soft Skills Sessions are a series of totally free, online classroom live sessions to equip you with the personal skills needed for different situations you may face within the workplace. They are created to compliment your apprenticeship framework, and most importantly they can be tailored to those who are new to a professional environment. Each session will be 90 minutes and topics will cover:

  • Time Management

    Tuesday 30th May 2017 (3:30pm-5:00pm)

    Time management is ultimately about learning to manage your self – deciding what your priorities are, tuning out distractions and making sure you achieve your goals. This course is aimed at anyone who would not grade their time management ability at 10/10. All attendees will reflect on their own ability to manage their time and work more effectively.

  • Assertiveness

    Tuesday 11th July 2017 (3:30pm-5:00pm)

    This course will benefit anyone who feels that they need to deal with people more confidently and more effectively - without being either too passive or too aggressive. We will look at different ways of managing conflict to help you get what you want from challenging situations at work and in your personal life.

  • Getting the most from your Working Relationships

    Tuesday 22nd August 2017 (3:30pm-5:00pm)

    Connecting with people is the key to success in business and the professions. This course includes how to network with fellow professionals outside your organisation, how to manage relationships with colleagues and bosses within it, how to build trust and confidence with everyone you interact with, and how to manage the expectations of others.

  • Confidence Building

    Tuesday 3rd October 2017 (3:30pm-5:00pm)

    If you have ever felt that you wished that you had more self-confidence then this course is for you. Practical steps for how to use nervousness and how to disguise it when you need to. Simple techniques for improving your confidence in meetings. Learning how to give and take feedback and how to turn criticism into the continuous improvement that leads to success.

  • Working as Part of a Team

    Tuesday 14th November 2017 (3:30pm-5:00pm)
