The third sector, responsible for 4% of Portugal’s GDP and involving 25% of the citizens of Europe, depends in many cases on the coordination of goodwill. For identical positions, wages in the social sector are much lower than in the public or private sectors. GOS – Management of Social Organizations, is the result of a partnership that AESE and ENTRAJUDA established in order to provide management training to the leaders of social institutions. Participants see the GOS as an opportunity to reflect upon the efficient use of the scarce resources that institutions have at their disposal, to develop a strategy more tailored to their objectives and to motivate the personnel of the institution. GOS, a Further Education Programme designed for Leaders of Social Economy Institutions (Social Solidarity Institutions, NGOs, Charities and other non-profit organisations), was created to assist with the management and optimisation of these scarce resources.
