Programmes de perfectionnement professionnel des étudiants des cycles supérieurs

Y a-t-il des possibilités de mentorat ou de stage au sein du programme?No, however, we do this under another umbrellas and within many of our graduate programs.
Sur quelles habiletés ou compétences les sessions sont-elles axées?The mandate of the GPPS Program is to offer graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at YorkU opportunities to enrich the versatile and transferable professional skills gained through graduate work, and to develop tools for success within a range of academic and non-academic professional contexts. The GPPS program offers opportunities to develop and reflect on those skills built during graduate research and the diverse ways in which they can be applied and leveraged. Because of its focus on versatility, this program emphasizes the enrichment of skills which are advantageous in a range of career paths. Because of its focus on transferability, this program emphasizes skills which may be carried forward and applied in multiple future contexts. The session focus on five themes: Career Pathways and Options, Knowledge Transfer Strategies, Transferable Professional Skills, Writing Success, and Getting Connected On Campus and Beyond.
