In business, employees are required to interact with people on a daily basis. At Cairns Business College, all of the business courses focus on developing each student's' communication skills, both written and verbal, which will be invaluable in the workforce.
Technical and Practical skills
Cairns Business Colleges' business courses place a large emphasis on teaching technical and practical skills (e.g. learning to develop and use spreadsheets in the Certificate II of Business). In any business, knowledge of these administrative tasks will be highly-regarded. Cairns Business College recognises the importance of technology in business and incorporates this essential skill into each course to help students shine in the corporate world.
Time Management and Organisation
This skill is about students learning to show their employers that they can prioritise their time to work efficiently and productively. Students will inherently learn this skill by studying at Cairns Business College as they are required to manage their own study schedule. However, each business course also focuses on applying this skill to business situations e.g. learning to manage and organise meetings in the Diploma of Business.
Leadership and Guidance
Working in business will mean working in a team. At times, leadership and guidance will be required to ensure the effective completion of tasks. By studying business at Cairns Business College, students are able to learn this key skill for future employment.
As all businesses rely on customers to keep them afloat, marketing is another one of the most important skills that every future employee in business must learn and practice. Cairns Business College offers a variety of units throughout each course to help students master the fundamentals of sales and promotions.
