Soft skills becoming increasingly important for employers

Misco is announcing its next intake of applicants for a number of interesting courses due to be offered over the coming months, such as the Level 6 Award in Strategic Marketing.

The aim of the Level 6 Award in Strategic Marketing is to help individuals develop a comprehensive range of strategic marketing skills.

This course will be made up of a mix of lectures and real-world practice through business simulations. Through this practical exercise, students will be more engaged in their studies and ultimately better prepared for the business world.

Other courses about to start at Misco include the Level 5 Award in Personal Development, the Level 5 Award in Human Resources Management, the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management, as well as the new Level 3 Award in Retail Operations, a qualification targeted towards those working in retail outlets interested in obtaining a qualification related to their job. This qualification will help them develop the necessary requirements to work in a retail outlet.

Employers, employees and even government are giving more weight to ongoing training

“We are noticing an increased interest in skills such as communication, assertiveness, negotiation, problem-solving and decision-making. More people are realising that we can live a better life if we make an effort to understand each other a bit more,” says Ritienne Xerri, director of training at Misco.

“Soft-skills training has an impact on the employability of people. Employers constantly talk about the importance of soft skills for these jobs and our role is to create training programmes where we share our knowledge and experience to boost employability while being a valuable contributor to the economy and to society at large,” Ms Xerri adds.

“Employers, employees and even government are giving more weight to ongoing employee training. The government, in fact, has also launched various training schemes to promote the training of those actively participating in the labour market.”
