to develop students' interpersonal skills and career management skills

We organise workshops and training sessions for university students, in order to develop their interpersonal skills and career management skills. Our intervention intends to (1) future-proof their career, (2) develop their self-awareness and essentially (3) boost their employability. We also organise career boost programmes during the summer/winter, as well as online trainings and webinars.

to Promote and develop skills in science communication

We develop students' communication and presentation skills, so that they can better disseminate their research findings. There is a need for greater public engagement between academia and broader society. And the ability to explain volumes of complex information in a simple, brief and memorable way is an important transversal skill.

to offer free publication opportunities in our GiLE Journal

Our GiLE Journal of Skills Development aims to publish scientific research papers on soft skills development. We aim to establish collaborative relationships with research institutions, universities, corporations and governmental agencies. Our organisation has an editorial board, editorial team, advisors, reviewers and proof-readers, that collectively possess a high-level of expertise and experience in academia and skills development.
