Career Orientated Training
SGSSS supports students to develop skills that will be useful for academic and non-academic careers.
Business Booster Training
SGSSS Business Booster training is designed to support you in developing industry-facing skills that could heighten the impact of your research and increase your employability post-PhD. Following a successful programme in 2019/20, the Business Booster programme will return in an online format in 2020/21. The programme will be led by Dr Joanna Young of Electv Training and involve structured workshops as well as the opportunity to troubleshoot real-life business problems with business leaders.
Why get involved?
Plus plenty of opportunities to network with and get to know fellow PhD students through groupwork and shared activities.
How to apply
The Business Booster Programme will be open for applications from early November. More information about the application process and eligibility will be posted online here. In the meantime, please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) runs a professional internship scheme for PhD students at Scotland’s universities in their second and third years of study. Currently offered by public sector organisations through two open calls each year, PhD internships enable organisations to access the talent of an early career social science researcher for a three-month period to deliver a specific piece of work whilst developing a range of transferable skills for our researchers.
