The Professional Certificate in Communication Skills is a demanding examination which is generally taken by adults already engaged in a profession (such as law, religion, business, or education) who wish to consolidate and receive recognition for their confident presentation and communication skills.
There are five requirements within the syllabus: presentation, social and reactive speaking, problem solving skills, summary and feedback skills, and discussion. The main requirement is an uninterrupted presentation as to a clearly defined audience of at least 20.
Vocal and physical presentation skills, use of appropriate visual aids, demonstration of advanced and refined interpersonal skills, and ability to engage with a variety of interactive professional and social situations are all assessed.
Specialist teachers and tutors in Communication Skills may be interested in the Licentiate Diploma (Teaching) which is available. See under Diploma Examinations.
