Hi friends, as some of you know, I have been teaching with Signum University for four years (see here and here and here). With a full service, online, affordable MA program in literature and linguistics, Signum is a leader in meaningful digital education. Now they have launched a program for skills development, called “Signum Path.” I just wanted to let people know about the program which launches today.
Today, Signum University launching Signum Path, a brand new program designed to help people get the foundational skills training they need for any and every job.
The Purpose of Signum Path
Signum Path was built on the premise that there are certain types of skills all employers look for in their employees – communication skills, critical analysis skills, emotional intelligence, among others. However, the business world tends to talk about these types of skills as “soft” skills, implying that they are less important, or at least are given less emphasis, than job-specific or “hard” skills. This dichotomy is what the Signum Path program aims to remedy.
Through the Signum Path program, people will be able to sign up for classes and earn badges toward building the skill set they need to succeed in their current roles and fulfill their career goals. Companies who sign up for Signum Path can customize their program to address the skills that are most in need of proficiency by their teams.
Signum is able to deliver these new career skill courses using the same digital classroom process and technology we’ve developed for Signum Grad School. Using our existing infrastructure allows us to deliver these classes at a very affordable rate for both individuals and corporate teams.
Registration Open Now
As of today, Signum Path registration is open for classes starting in June. Individuals who are interested in taking any of our Signum Path classes can register here.
Our first slate of classes will include one course from each of the four inaugural badges:
- Writing for Results: Nuts & Bolts
- Person to Person: Emotional Intelligence
- Making Verbal Connections: Two-Way Communication
- Strengthening Your Core: Marketing Yourself
Additional classes will be offered monthly in July, August, and beyond. People can enroll in those classes now, as well.
