The British Council’s Skills Plus course designed to help students improve their communication skills for higher education and post-baccalaureate careers – Adaderana Biz

The British Council is now accepting applications for its English Skills Plus course specifically designed for students who have completed their A-level exams. The course has been personalized to help students gain self-confidence and develop their English skills. It is supplemented by life skills aimed at young adults who are making important life choices in their academic and professional plans.

The course provides the opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded people and uses project-based active learning techniques to make lessons relevant and applicable to real-life situations. It focuses on a variety of communication skills such as delivering presentations, participating in debates, team building, digital literacy while enabling students to develop important life skills such as collaboration, leadership and personal development, creativity and critical thinking. Skills Plus offers five different levels, from basic to advanced, giving students the opportunity to improve their skills.

Anju Moses, Head of Young Learners and Adults at the Teaching Center said: “our students work together inside and outside the classroom to complete practical projects such as developing a development project proposal for the Sri Lankan Tourism Board or designing a campaign to promote safe use of social media in Sri Lankan universities. During these projects, students will learn and practice research skills, critical thinking, and collaborative skills that will support them in their future studies and careers.

Helen Sykes, the assistant manager who runs the teaching centers island-wide, was keen to let us know that “Skills Plus is so much more than just learning English. This is an interactive and practical course designed to prepare Sri Lankan students to achieve their education, career and life goals, packed with essential soft skills for the future workplace.”

Highly qualified British Council teachers offer expert guidance, in face-to-face and online interactive English lessons, giving students the confidence to use the English language in real-life situations. The British Council has over 80 years of teaching in English and is trusted by over 100 million students around the world.
