    QCC will be holding information sessions February 11 and 13 for businesses to learn about upcoming free soft skills workshops.

Businesses have the chance to attend information sessions on February 11 and February 13 to learn about the upcoming free Soft Skills Workshop Series that Quinsigamond Community College will be teaching this spring. “Soft skills” is a term that seems to be flooding the business market, as more and more employers are finding their employees do not have the basic skill sets needed to be competitive in today’s global marketplace.

“At QCC, we stay cognizant of industry needs,” said Dean of the Center for Workforce Development and Continuing Education, Kathleen Manning.

Free soft skills workshops will be available at various QCC locations in March, April and May. Companies that are eligible for these upcoming free training workshops must be located in Massachusetts, pay into the MA Unemployment Fund (which allocates money into the Workforce Training Fund) and hold a Certificate of Good Standing with the MA Department of Revenue.

To learn about QCC’s soft skills workshops series and how your company can take part, or to learn more about the various Workforce Training Grants available to companies, attend one of the following free information sessions:

  • Tuesday, February 11, 10:00 a.m. at the Center for Workforce Development and Continuing Education, 25 Federal Street, Worcester
  • Thursday, February 13, 10:00 a.m., Central MA South Chamber, 46 Hall Street, Sturbridge

Funding for QCC’s soft skills training workshops is through a $143,000 Direct Access Grant from the Workforce Training Fund. QCC’s spring soft skills workshops will include:       

  • Essential Business Skills
  • Time Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Presenting with Impact
  • Communicating with Clarity and Impact
  • Creative Problem Solving and Decision Making
