Young people entering the job market need to be adaptable – now more than ever. The skills that they need to thrive in future jobs are rapidly changing and will continue to change over the next ten years. McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm, predicts a 30 percent growth in demand for social-emotional skills with the rise of technology and automation.
Kindi Education’s International Employment Skills Course for young people responds to this prediction by focusing on essential social-emotional, communication and project management skills. By the end of the course trainees will be ready to face global challenges and will be equipped with the practical skills to take control of their future career.
This intensive four-week course equips trainees with the essential social-emotional, communication and project management skills that top international organizations and companies are now searching for. Trainees are taught by highly experienced instructors and inspirational guest speakers from the local and international public and private sectors working at diverse and thriving organizations.
During experiential learning workshops trainees explore the 21st Century Skills and use their Learning Journal to reflect on and consolidate learning. Through the implementation of a robust group project, the course challenges trainees to research local or global problems and environmental issues, and to create a social enterprise business solution.
PROJECT BASED LEARNING
The afternoon course project sees trainees envision, develop and present a Social Enterprise Business (SEB) idea to experts in the field. Facilitated by instructors trained in high quality project based learning and experienced mentors, the project acts as the vehicle through which trainees implement the internationally applicable skills learnt in the morning sessions. SEBs are focused on solving problems through innovative means. They tackle social issues from the community to the international level, and address these by employing a diverse range of people.
