The general consensus is that a person’s social skills play a very important role in our everyday life and in our professional life. Of course, it is known that a large portion of the world does not have the time, and many times even the resources, to be able to develop them.
Through the project “MOVE UP-Boosting the social skills of adults for better employability and success at work”, we tried to analyse them. After desk researches and focus groups meetings that partners from Turkey, Austria, England and Portugal and Greece implemented in their countries, we recognized and developed the social skills of the employees according to their profession. According to that, we defined 120 occupations and 60 skills.
The main objective of the training activity that took place in Larissa, in the premises of the Institute of Entrepreneurship Development, was that trainers/partners/educators from the partner countries would be informed on the way that they can provide training to adults on the social skills through the web-based platform that is free accessible to all and provides useful information on the social skills necessary for the profession they are pursuing, but also the ways that they can develop them.
You can find the platform here!
