The British Council is pleased to announce call for applications for “Development of International Offices in Azerbaijani Universities” training on 24-28 September, 2012 and 21-25 January, 2013 in the framework of the British Council’s new initiative Internationalising Higher Education Programme. The training will be conducted at Azerbaijan University of Languages.
4 main strands of the programme are: Providing international information through ‘Educational Market Intelligence’; Extending global knowledge in higher education through ‘Global Policy Dialogue’; Building practical partner relationships through ‘Global HE Partnerships’; Connecting academics and students through ‘Students and Alumni’.
The training will be conducted by an international expert from the United Kingdom. Simultaneous translation from English to Azerbaijani and vice-versa will be provided. Expenses related to the training will be paid by organisers.
Implemented in 10 regions all over the World, Internationalising Higher Education is British Council Programme to globalize knowledge partnerships, promote innovation, extend policy debates, and establish a new generation partnership model to develop global knowledge economies. It builds tripartite partnerships between governments, universities and industry in the UK and overseas through a unique approach to cultural relations that builds trust, engagement and mutual benefit.
In Azerbaijan, the programme will focus on Global Partnerships within Higher Education and will contribute to the improvement of different aspects of Higher Education, including quality assurance, trans-national education, entrepreneurship and enterprise, transferrable skills and competencies. We will work in cooperation with Ministry of Education and reliable partner Universities. The cooperation will include ‘in country’ and ‘regional’ forums (seminars, workshops, symposia, etc.) as well as exchange of researchers, faculty staff and education professionals between UK and Azerbaijan.
British Council will support joint activities in higher education, sometimes assisted through participation of the representatives of HE in Azerbaijan in bilateral and multinational Conferences as well as in country gatherings, bringing in the best UK expertise in the field.
