Training & Development Department

Director:  Emily Phillips

The Training and Development Department takes a holistic approach to core development skills and have divided them into three focus areas:  Life Skills, Employability Skills, and Career Skills.


When we speak about a holistic approach to core development skills, it must incorporate all areas of your daily living. In terms of Life Skills, it refers to a set of fundamental abilities that someone needs to get through modern, everyday living. Where Employability Skills, refers to the abilities someone needs to find a job, apply to it, interview for it, and start working. Lastly, Career Skills are abilities that keep someone successful in a job or company, especially as a person is promoted.


People with strong life skills are considered to have maturity and professionalism. Those with strong life skills are less likely to be reactive, and they are aware of their surroundings and themselves. Life skills are critical to management and leadership positions.
