Soft Skills for Strong Teachers

Description

Concept by Cristina Salvatori

Hard skills, also known as academic knowledge and know-how, are often the direct focus of education and the skills considered necessary to get your foot in the door of many fields of employment.

Soft skills, however, are the interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities that not only help you keep that job and advance in your career – they help you live better in every aspect of your life.

During this course, educators will deepen their understanding of Soft Skills and reflect on their own abilities in their macro-areas such as Leadership, Relational Skills, Self-Awareness, Creativity, Problem-Solving, and Communication.

Through hands-on activities that combine these skills, participants will learn to transform the prevailing theories of communication, as well as emotional and social intelligence, into practical experiences in their classroom.

While Soft Skills are sometimes conveyed in the curriculum through special projects and after-school activities, this course proposes ways to incorporate them into every facet of the school day.

Reviews about this course

Nedka Kutsarova Shopovafrom Bulgaria
5 stars

I liked all the topics that were raised and thoroughly covered during the five days. I enjoyed the many examples that were covered as well as the tips we were given to apply in our classrooms. I liked the concept of the fuzzy words; the six thinking hats; suggested sites from which we can draw information and be useful in our practice. I liked the most the practical games about emotional intelligence; for cooperation and collective exercises. I was charmed by the emotional awarding of the certificates and especially by the wonderful words of the teacher trainer.

The happy school concept may not be new, but the way to make your school happy is what this course focuses on. Being a happy teacher, being happy about your job, stepping in a classroom wearing a large smile can make a difference to your whole career, which eventually reflects on the way your students and fellow teachers feel about your classes and school. After all, happy is and happy makes!

One of the most interesting and most focused courses I have ever participated in. I have deepened my understanding of Soft Skills such as Leadership, Relational Skills, Self-Awareness, Creativity, Problem Solving and Communication. Really inspiring has been the collaboration with teachers from other European countries and the competence, passion, and enthusiasm of the teacher trainer.

The course was very interesting. The content was up-to-date and interesting. Work was dynamic. A guided tour of the city was very instructive and fun at the same time. The whole day tour of the Irish country was very well organized and guided. I highly recommend to all teachers!
