We are pleased to invite administrative personnel working with international students from partner and potential new partner universities to the 1st International Blended Staff Training Week at the University of Latvia!


Blended Staff Training is an innovative new approach, combining e-learning with a traditional staff training. The aim of the Staff Training Week is to introduce participants with essential competences university’s administrative worker shall obtain and improve for successful completion of daily work.

The “Boost up your Competences+” Training is composed of one online meeting on August 10, 2021 and a 5-day on-site event that will take place in the beautiful city of Riga, the largest of the three Baltic capitals, from the August 16 till August 20, 2021 .

During the Staff Training Week, a representative from the University of Latvia will lead an online webinar and experts from the Career Centre of the University of Latvia will give the participants an opportunity to learn more about time management, stress management and conflict management skills - the three most important skills for university administrative staff working with international students.

We are looking for active participants willing to improve their professional competences, share their experiences, creative ideas and best practices from their home universities.

There is a participation fee of 100 €, which covers welcome party/goodbye cake, coffee breaks and cultural activities. Participants are expected to cover their travel, accommodation and living expenses. 

We will host up to 20 participants, and no more than 2 participants per university will be accepted.

! Please take your refill bottle with you for water and your thermo mug for coffee or tea. A small step with a serious impact!
! You are welcome to bring with you traditional sweets from your country for coffee breaks.

We are looking forward to meet you online and in Riga to jointly explore solutions to increase the quality of our daily work!
