The first academy was founded in Greece by Plato in 387 BC where Aristotle studied for 20 years.
It was the school of philosophy located at a site where there was an olive grove, a park and a gymnasium.
Our academy, in the 21st century digital age, is nothing like that. It is an online school to offer soft skills development courses.
According to the survey, Canadian employers now look for 60% soft skills and 40% hard skills in their new recruits. However, most immigrant coming to Canada possess 90% hard skills and 10% soft skills, which make it difficult for them to get into the labor market.
EduFirst Academy will help new immigrants as well as job seekers around the world in improving their soft skills by offering a range of courses.
