Since 2009, SKILLSETS continues to provide general, transitional, and professional skill development opportunities to complement the research training provided by the academic experience at McGill for all graduate students.

SKILLSETS is stewarded by Teaching and Learning Services. Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and Student Services are the primary collaborators, continually advising on SKILLSETS programming, and making a variety of other contributions to all aspects of the SKILLSETS program, from delivery of workshops and special events, to developing connections with alumni and industry partners. Together, we develop and promote interdisciplinary professional development offerings to all graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

As a McGill student, your participation in full to activities such as training workshops and volunteering are tracked on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR)! Having your co-curricular activities listed in one document can help you revise your CV or cover letter, prepare for interviews, and explore career options.

While this web page is accessible worldwide, McGill University is on land which has served and continues to serve as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. Teaching and Learning Services acknowledges and thanks the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps mark this territory on which peoples of the world now gather. This land acknowledgement is shared as a starting point to provide context for further learning and action.
