What is the Employability Skills Course?

The 12-hour fully online course helps ELT teachers enhance their employability skills, also known as soft skills, which are the personal qualities and attributes that are essential for success in the workplace. These skills include communication, teamwork, problem-solving, time management, adaptability, and leadership. They are highly valued by employers, as they enable employees to work effectively with others, think critically, and meet deadlines. Developing employability skills is crucial for anyone looking to build a successful career, as they are often considered just as important as technical skills or qualifications; they are particularly important for those who want to move into positions of responsibility in the world of ELT.

The course is composed of the following two components:

  • Cambridge One(8 hours): You will first explore what it means to use eight essential employability and soft skills for career success to help you stand out and demonstrate that you’re ready for the world of work.

  •  Live input sessions (4 hours): Four one-hour, in-depth, live input sessions, will each cover two units of the module and showcase how EFL teachers benefit from these skills inside and outside classrooms, based on Cambridge’s employability skills framework for ELT professionals.

The eight Cambridge One modules of the employability skills course will be permanently added, starting in the spring of 2024, to EfA's CELTA course, free of charge, for all our CELTA candidates. This ties in with our mission to help our CELTA alumni equip themselves and their resumes with skills and qualifications to find better offers. So don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity offered only by EfA.
