International Staff Training Week: "Train the trainers"

The URV's International Staff Training Week - Train the trainers is aimed at providing trainers with the skills they need in order to give courses on internationalisation that are especially designed for university staff. his "Train the trainers" course stems from the SUCTI Project, which has been proposed by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) to the SGroup European Universities' Network. SUCTI (Systemic Universities Change Towards Internationalisation) was born out of the university system's need to adopt internationalisation.

Once the universities have truly absorved the concept of internationalisation, the systemic change will make them truly international institutions, and internationalisation will become second nature to them and not merely an added extra. This is a much needed change and universities have long worked towards this objective, by increasing student mobility numbers, links to other institutions and joint research and publications, among other things. But what about the administrative staff? Obviously there are international staff weeks. But is this enough? Does this benefit all of our administrative staff? At the URV we have designed a training course on internationalisation especially for administrative staff. This Train the Trainers programme will be given at the URV and other partner institutions and will provide trainers with all the tools they need to give courses on internationalisation at their home institutions, and help them bring about the systemic change towards internationalisation.
