NAME & PHILOSOPHY
What’s in a name?
The word “GAIN” represents the concept of attainment and achievement, usually spurred by a desire to improve or advance know-how including a given skill, knowledge base, or competency area. On a daily basis, our human nature gives us the drive to constantly enhance what we have or know by moving in a forward direction towards improvement through increased knowledge and awareness as well as optimal resource utilization to achieve desired goal.
It is this understanding that led to the creation of Gain Contact, a company committed to providing the tools, skills and resources to spur the development of a given lifestyle area.

Gain Contact Group’s major fields of operation are education, training and consulting.

At Gain Contact we embrace a process called lifelong learning. Lifelong learning is a broad concept that focuses on the ongoing acquisition of knowledge or skills. It occurs where education is flexible, diverse and available at different times and places and is pursued throughout life. It is a continuum of the learning process that takes place at all levels – formal, non-formal and informal – utilizing various modalities such as distance learning and conventional learning. The idea is that learning can and does occur beyond the formal structure of an educational institution and occurs throughout one’s lifetime.
The concept of lifelong learning has been adopted by most developed and developing nations across the globe given the scale of current economic and social change and the rapid transition to a knowledge-based society. These along with the demographic pressures resulting from an ageing population in the Western hemisphere are all challenges which demand a new approach to education and training, within the framework of lifelong learning.
In the context of these challenges, lifelong learning is given a high priority at Gain Contact where it is defined as encompassing all learning activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competence, within a personal, civic, social and/or employment-related perspective.
We truly embrace the notion of “If there’s a will, there’s a way” and adopt this concept within our GAIN company mantra. We believe that attainment and achievement, is usually spurred by a desire to improve and advance know-how within a given skill, knowledge base, or competency area. By employing proactive strategies, we aim to leverage expertise, skill and need across countries, markets and cultures. Our mission is to create an interconnected knowledge base; a lifestyles and learning destination experience that can maximize potential for success for any individual or organization.
