I found this programme great for thinking about my future career. It also gave me ideas about how to explain my project.
These sessions were really excellent and the trainer communicates so clearly and is really engaging. Kept my attention throughout!!
Some courses include multimedia content covering key concepts, frameworks and principles. Learners are encouraged to review materials prior to the workshop and can access anytime during the programme.
Interactive zoom-based workshops that help learners activate the tools/skills with their peers. We apply a range of tools to support group work and collaboration, including online breakout rooms, virtual whiteboards and a digital collaborative spaces.
Each programme includes application activities that encourage the participant to apply their learning to their situation. Some of the activities are submitted for review by the trainer.
If you want someone to go that extra mile to provide professional training material to suit your requirement I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
We employed Skillfluence to develop a series of training programs tailored towards science graduates. The facilitators were highly professional, easy to work with and they listened and responded to our specific training needs with excellent suggestions and a bespoke program. The workshops delivered our training goals and got excellent participant feedback. We are very happy with Skillfluence and will be using them again in the future.
Alison presented the communication skills and career workshop at the European Congress of Biotechnology as initiated by the Young European Biotech Network. It was a pleasure to collaborate with Alison. Her presentation was well designed and contained many important advises for young scientists. She did a fantastic job in encouraging the attendants to get out of their seats and practice their communication skills during the presentation.
“This is my first time to learn about job interviews and Ph.D experience, especially UK job description which is new for me. Therefore, I learned significant details and technique from this workshop and found out it’s very useful for my future.”
