The GJSD was established in 2021. Since its inception, the Journal aspires to impact its target audience – authors and readers – and to provide a medium and a knowledge hub for the dissemination of research results in the field of personal, transferrable skills, a complex set of personal characteristics, with a particular focus on young people’s skill needs, the challenges they face, and youth employability.
