STEP 10 Studies to get the Masters Degree in Public and Institutional Management in Balvi branch of Daugavpils University; The title for my Masters paper is: Implementation of EU projects for Human Development in Balvi;
My main goal is to emphasise and prove the facts that the lifelong learning and exchange of experience as well as projects in the realm of adults education, help to widen an individuals intellectual level, communication of information and personal growth.At the same time it contributes to the development of local territory as such,more and more international festivals are taking place in Balvi during last years.
In cooperation with Balvi Further Education Centre, I have increased the quality of adult learning and motivated learners to study languages using new methods. Communication skills, social skills, and team working skills are developed as well.
It is extremely important to motivate people to study because studying offers a lot of possibilities to change our lives!!! There is a Latvian proverb: LIFE LIVE AND LEARN !!! We have understood this and try to follow this idea!!!
At present my work is connected with different projects including scholarships for teachers and teaching English for groups of unemployed; I dare to say that Im a good Learning Ambassador and I am sure each of us has to study throughout our lives and share experiences and skills gained.
Aims to be reached in the near future: In cooperation with Estonian, Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian friends and partners- why not - you – to open a INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE COLLEGE for the sake of teaching the Nordic languages!!!
May the road rise up to meet you, the wind be always at your back, and may the God keep you in the palm of his hand until we met again! Thanks for your attention!
