Spain's Labour Foundation for Construction and Speexx launch online language training platform
Flexible communication skills training for businesses and staff members of Spain's construction sector
The Labour Foundation for Construction is a reference entity for the entire construction sector within Spain. Its main focus points are the prevention of health and safety risks in the workplace, as well as education, innovation, sustainability and new technologies. With over 400 different educational offers, the Foundation has now added online language training to its portfolio. This is a significant step in the Foundation's implementation of cloud-based learning solutions for communication skills training. The primary languages offered by the Foundation and Speexx will be English, French and German.
The goal of the foreign language and communication courses is to support professionals who need to improve their skills in a flexible way. Students choose from a variety of options which are suited to their individual learning needs. The course modules include online courseware, personalised coaching and live communication skills training via virtual classroom or telephone sessions. This way, students boost their communicative skills in a real-life business situation. Professional Speexx language trainers are also available to give guidance and support throughout the course. The online platform will allow students to learn at their own pace, while enabling HR Managers to compare and measure learning results.
"The current economic climate and high-speed globalisation have created an intensified internationalisation process for organisations and businesses of this sector", explains David de Teresa, Commercial Director of the Foundation. "The quest for business opportunities beyond borders affects organisations of all sizes. In order to adapt to this change, we have decided to boost our language training offer for employees of the construction sector as well as similar industries".
Elena Giménez, Head of Speexx Spain, comments, "The construction industry is key to our country's economy, and Spanish companies represent a leading example of this sector. This partnership between the Foundation and Speexx will give professionals access to a high quality language training solution, anytime and anywhere. A strong knowledge of Business English and other languages is key to professional learning and development, both within and beyond Spain's borders."
