Communication Skills

About the Level 3 Communication Skills Certificate

Effective communication is possibly the one of the most important skills we can learn. The better we are at communicating, the more successful we are at life. This course has been designed to help people learn what it means to be an effective communicator, to help them develop their speaking skills and to help them improve their interpersonal skills.

The course in made up of six units. These insightful modules have been designed to clearly explain the important aspects of communication and help students to apply these skills in everyday situations. From communicating by telephone and online, to writing efficiently and listening effectively, this communications skills course will help students master the art of communication.

Who should study this course?

Courses to improve your communication skills, like this one, are predominantly aimed at those with less confidence in their communication abilities. However, this home learning course may also be useful for those who want to help others develop their communication skills.

At learndirect, we don’t ask for any prior qualifications or experience before students enrol on our communication skills course. All we ask is that they have the motivation to succeed and a way to access our distance learning course materials.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home learning course, you will know how to communicate effectively with friends and strangers alike. You will be able to take your new found skills and use them in a wide variety of situations to aid your personal and career related success.

Most professions and higher education courses involve a certain element of communication; this means your skills will be useful wherever you decide to go. However, if you want a career which specifically relates to communication, you could consider working in the following areas:

  • Communications
  • Public relations
  • Journalism
