Soft skills course for a post-Covid-19 world
A three-part workshop series for BGA members

BGA is delighted to announce a new training course comprised of virtual workshops exclusively for BGA student and graduate members. These workshops are designed to support professional development, personal development, and networking opportunities in an online format. The three-part workshop series will enable attendees to immediately put the concepts learned into practical action, whether it be in your studies or in your career.

Each workshop builds on the previous one, and by attending all three workshops in the course you will receive a certificate of achievement from BGA. The cost of attending all three workshops is £15.00, Workshop One is free of charge, Workshop Two is £5.00, and the third and final Workshop is £10.00 (all prices are excluding VAT). To get the most out of the series, we highly recommend participating in all three workshops, allowing you to build on various skills. 

As a new initiative, we want to ensure that you have a positive, high-quality experience, which is why we have offered Workshop one for free. If you find the workshop valuable and would like to continue the course and earn your certificate, you must attend all three workshops. However, if you would like to attend just one workshop in the course, you may do so without receiving a certificate. 

What the workshops offer:

• Develop vital skills for future business leaders

• Tangible tips and techniques to apply to your business career

• Build connections with other BGA members

• Increase personal and professional confidence

• An opportunity to share ideas with other members

Digital certificate of recognition for attending all 3 workshops.

The workshop series is a new event here at BGA for our members, we also understand the financial challenges our members are facing during this pandemic and do not want to exclude any of our members due to not being able to afford to attend the workshop series. Therefore we have offered these workshops at a reduced rate.
