The selection process for this year’s HSE Professional Development Programme for Administrative Staff continues until November 30. The programme is aimed at staff who want to go beyond their standard job responsibilities and try their hand at new projects.

The duration of the programme is two years. In that time, participants will find ideas they want to implement at the university, form teams of like-minded thinkers with other participants, and work to implement their projects. The programme will provide assistance in the form of training sessions, working meetings with experts, field trips and individual coaching sessions.

Participants of the programme can:

  • get to know their colleagues from other departments better and make new professional contacts
  • gain a better understanding of the university’s strategic tasks and get actively involved in implementing changes
  • improve their professional competencies and opportunities for career development at the university; participate in professional discussions of topical issues for the university and collaborative solutions

Outcomes of the HSE Professional Development Programme in previous years include the Media Archive, a virtual consultant for the HSE Legal Office, a project to make the ‘Vyshaya Proba’ Olympiad more accessible to people with visual impairments, an information resource for materially responsible persons, and a range of other important and useful initiatives.

If you have any ideas about how to improve the business processes at HSE University and would like to develop your management and leadership competencies, you can apply to the Professional Development Programme through your MyHSE Services Account. The application deadline is November 30, 2022.

Yulia Grinkevich

Programme Manager

The main goal of the Professional Development Programme is to create a community of university administrators who are actively involved in its life, are capable of making horizontal connections, and who have experience of solving joint tasks with their colleagues from other departments.

Our colleagues’ experiences of implementing university development projects on the programme shows that despite their differences, administrators from different departments can find common ground and work together to formulate tasks to develop administrative services, correlate them with the strategic tasks of the university, and find like-minded people to solve them.
