Unit 5: navigating the Workplace

Ref: C2226525

Once you get back into the work, or start your first job, there are a lot of things about the workplace that can be confusing. This course will help you to understand what employers are looking for from their workers in terms of teamwork and communication skills as well as personal presentation. It will help you to identify the things that you already know and to list things that you feel you may need help with. The course will also help you to find answers to your questions about your rights as an employee. You will be given time during the course to work on things that you would like to improve on.
