Investing in the Development of 'Soft Skills' for the Workplace. 
Identifying the growing demand for Personal Skills in the workplace, the LEMIS+ Project is delighted to announce a new module starting in April 2018 that will focus on identifying and developing ‘soft skills’ for their clients - those skills that allow people to interact with others, express feelings, and manage behaviours. 
 
Becoming a course topic within the current LEMIS+ Personal Development course, the aim is to meet the needs of recruiters who are currently placing emphasis on finding employees with not only quantifiable ‘hard skills’ but also with the personal skills that go towards creating a positive and strong company culture. 
 
The Personal Skills module is free to use and will explore the following topics: 
 
Positive Attitudes and Behaviours 
Sense of Responsibility 
Adaptability 
Interest in Lifelong Learning 
 
Developing the programme, LEMIS+ Personal Development Tutor Emalyn Turkington commented:  
 
“I created this module to help clients prepare for the workplace – understanding that people with well-developed personal skills are easier to work with and contribute more towards a productive and efficient environment. After identifying that many of my Personal Development course participants found it difficult to think positively about their strengths, I wanted to invest in growing personal skills. My hope is that individuals will recognise their unique traits and qualities and begin to see them as desirable workplace skills.”
