International Week for Non-Teaching Staff 2012

It is our pleasure to welcome our international partners to attend the 4th annual International Week for Non-Teaching Staff that will take place in Tampere, Finland on 11 – 15 June 2012. This international staff training week is intended for the non-teaching staff of our partner universities and carries the theme Intercultural working environment”.

Programme of the week

As the campus climate and learning environments are getting more and more international, becomes intercultural communication an important part of our everyday life. We all need a better understanding of factors affecting such situations. During the sessions the participants will increase their knowledge and awareness of culture and its influence on communication. Also, we all get an opportunity to share our own challenging experiences!

The aim for the week is to tackle the theme and to enjoy each other’s company. Part of the programme will be the same for all the guests, including lectures/workshops on intercultural communication.

Another part will be tailor-made for the following interest groups:

- International services
- Sports services (organises sports services to staff and students)
- Marketing and communications services (public relations and marketing, internal communication)
- Administrational services (incl. Human resources, Finance services and project management services, General administration)
- Career and recruitment services (student advisors and counselors)

The week will offer an opportunity to gain once-in-a-lifetime experiences as the participants will be introduced to Finnish culture and society!

More information on the week is on TAMK website!
