Personal & Professional Development


SKIP aims to develop globally and culturally aware students who can advocate for local and international health progress as future professionals.

We strive to educate and empower students through training, national events and experience in their own roles.


SKIP Personal & Professional Survey Report

In 2015, the SKIP measured the impact the charity has on the lives and careers of its members. The results were pretty amazing!

I could not have done 90% of what I have achieved in the last 10 years without SKIP. The level of management, team working and strategic planning skills I gained whilst still a student has frequently put me ahead of my peers and my experience with the charity I know will shape my future career

…and the SKIP Training Network

Training New Trainers is an interactive two day course that allows attendees to become a qualified SKIP trainer. It’s a brilliant opportunity to gain confidence and build training skills, covering material from facilitation to presentation, and leadership to conflict resolution!

Becoming a SKIP trainer allows you to be part of the SKIP Training Network and to train locally and nationally within SKIP, and potentially with other organisations such as Students for Global Health. It is highly useful in your professional life, and it also helps you stand out on a CV.

It was one of the best things I ever did in SKIP - TNT broke me out of my shell and allowed me to grow into the person I am today. The skills I gained extend far beyond SKIP and have been applicable into almost every aspect of my life. My advice to anyone attending would be get ready to make friends for life - you’ll have a blast!

Through SKIP I have had the opportunity to take on so many different roles: volunteer, teacher, trainer, mentor, advocate, manager, leader, follower…. Each of them have helped me develop a new perspective and set of skills.
