The title of this course is Business Skills, and that is exactly what it covers. What skills do you need in business? You will cover anything from getting a job, writing a letter or a report, doing a presentation, word-processing and other computer applications. As you can see there are many different skills involved in these varied functions. Many of the skills you will cover will also benefit you in your studies.
The areas covered are also fundamental to your everyday life whether you are applying for a job, writing a letter to apply for a grant or a mortgage, working out your personal finances on your computer, speaking at a special anniversary or conducting a meeting of your local music society.
Whatever your career or your interests, in today's business environments you need to be able to communicate and to use a computer!
