What you will study and achieve

Communication skills are used in everything we do. Effective communication skills can often determine success or failure.  Great leaders need to be great communicators. 

Changes to ways of working – remote/hybrid environments, rely on effectual communications, ensuring individuals and teams stay connected, collaborate and accomplish common objectives. 

For leaders, being able to create and sell a vision, help individuals or teams to work effectively, resolve conflict and influence rely on nurturing those communication skills and displaying strong, concise and appropriate communications.

Communication can be delivered physically – in-person or in a virtual setting, one-to-one, in small or large groups.

Five types of communications will be explored – oral/verbal, written, active listening/audio, non-verbal and contextual.

Credits and certification

The course is worth 5 credits at SCQF level 7 which you can refer to in any job or academic application. You will receive a formal University of Strathclyde certificate of completion after the closing date of the course.
