The participants of the integration courses will explore the fundamental values of Latvia's history and the country, its political system, acquire knowledge of the social, educational and health services system in Latvia and accessibility, will get to know the situation in the labour market, employment, the opportunities to work or build their own business, as well as knowledge of Latvian culture, traditions and skills in the development of intercultural dialogue.

What are Latvia's economics, traditions, values, features compared to other countries in Europe and the world? Where and how can you make friends with the locals? What do you need to know to live successfully in Latvia? To these and many other questions the participants will receive answers in integration courses. The training will be organised as lectures and practical consultations. The courses will be led by experience-rich and knowledgeable lecturers. Training languages -Latvian, Russian or English - interpreters of other languages will be invited, if necessary.
