“Through key skills training I was able to expand my knowledge horizon at university. I learned so many soft skills that weren’t taught in my regular courses. I am sure that this knowledge will not only be a benefit now, but will also aid me in the futur.

Once you have become a team tutor and have gained some experience over a few projects, you can further specialize to become a trainer in key skills (TISK). Does the concept of agile work, moderation or time management at university interest you? Do you want to impart these skills to your fellow students? If this interests you, we encourage you to undertake this course, so that you can acquire the skills to design a TISK training, followed by rolling it out for other students.

To start you off you will participate in a three day course for training conception. This course is offered semi-annual. In the process of creating your training you will also be supported with two conception conversations. Your training will be followed up with an observation and feedback conversation.

For more information regarding this offer, please contact to set up an interview. You are welcome to bring topic suggestions to the interview. In addition to further training, we suggest attending TISK training. The topics and dates can be found here. The trainings are free for registered students.
