ONLINE COMPONENTS

JOIN THE COMMUNITY

Pagoda Projects have developed a bespoke app which is available in the App Store and Play Store.

The app’s functionality is built for communities and allows users to engage, share and communicate with each other whilst maintaining a high level of privacy.

A UNIQUE WAY TO SHARE CULTURES

As part of the Remote Internship Program interns will be partnered with a ‘Cultural Mentor’, who will help them to increase their intercultural awareness. This cultural exposure will not only assist the intern during their internship and collaborating with colleagues and external partners, but will also bridge barriers and connect students and graduates from all corners of the globe.

4 UNIQUE ONLINE COURSES

DIGITAL COMPETENCY / CULTURAL FLUENCY / EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS / WORKPLACE BASICS

Pagoda Projects have developed a series of skills courses set to encourage the development of student and recent graduate’ current skillset with the fundamental elements needed to improve their ‘work readiness’ for a post-pandemic business world.

The skills series includes courses focusing on Intercultural Fluency, Employability and Digital Competency. We believe this framework provides the learner with the agility needed for a global and ever-changing workplace, preparing them with the knowledge to communicate effectively within an international work-group or team, tackle the job market with awareness, preparation and confidence and have a strong understanding of the importance of ‘digital’ once they enter the workplace.

As qualifications remain a vital measure of achievement, a certificate is provided following each completed course
