Leveraging GCE Skills

The Centre for Global Citizenship, Education & Inclusion (GCEI) works to support students in demonstrating their GCE skills to distinguish themselves to potential employers. Through workshops, resources and one-on-one consultations on digital portfolio development and GCE skills for employment, they work with students and faculty to prepare Centennial's graduates to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate the value they bring to their field and industry.
