The training ran for more than a year and comprised a total of 5 terms, with 48 academic hours per term. Training for 230 groups of civil servants was delivered by 18 English language teachers, based on a specially developed training programme that broadened and strengthened the participants' knowledge of EU political and administrative terminology, formal grammar and business communications skills in the English language.
"When preparing civil servants for work during the Presidency of Latvia in the EU Council, the task of Skrivanek Baltic was to develop the methodology and to make sure that the civil servants would be able to effectively participate in the EU Council working process using a good quality of English by 1 January 2015. It was also essential for us to improve the language fluency of each civil servant according to his/her duties and tasks during the Presidency and to enable their quality participation in informal discussions in English as well. I believe that during the training the language skills of responsible civil servants were substantially improved and their new level of fluency in the English language will help to effectively implement the goals of Latvia during the Presidency" explained Vasilijs Ragačevičs, Head of Skrivanek Baltic.
We are very pleased to be part of AmCham and are looking forward to driving innovation forward in Latvia.
