Vol. 2 No. 1 (2022): GiLE Journal of Skills Development

The GJSD was established in 2021 and is now in its second year. 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 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.

We believe that removing barriers for academics, practitioners, and readers helps us to create and disseminate valuable knowledge. We are grateful to the authors whose views created the unique collection of insights in Volume 2 Issue 1 (2022) of the journal.
