Workshops and webinars on professional competencies

WE ALREADY HAVE THE PROGRAMMING OF WEBINARS AND WORKSHOPS 2021!
We want to help you both professionally and personally by offering you free activities that will help you face the future more strongly! Don't miss this opportunity! We are waiting for you!

In a job market that is ever changing and becoming ever more demanding, developing competencies is a continual and essential process for everybody because they play a very important role in ensuring professional and business success. Businesses demand staff that have skills, abilities and attitudes that complement their academic training. Nowadays it is no longer sufficient just to KNOW (have knowledge), individuals also need to KNOW HOW TO DO (have skills) and to KNOW HOW TO BE or HOW TO ACT (have the right attitude).

What are professionals competencies?

They are all of those skills, aptitudes and behaviours that enable individuals to carry out their work successfully.
An individual who has developed their professional competencies can understand and make themselves understood, manage and give effective and high quality solutions in different work situations.
