TUFS Administrative Staff Overseas Training Debriefing Session held at TUFS
September 12, 2019
Here at TUFS, we aim to measure and improve the language skills, qualities and international abilities of our administrative staff who support the globalization of TUFS through conducting stage-based international training. The International Management Office is at the center of this undertaking. The training is split into three stages: the first stage is on-campus language training, the second is domestic camp training and the third is international fieldwork. Staff participating in the third stage must have a certain level of language proficiency, as it aims to broaden their horizons through having them experience diversity at an overseas administrative organization or higher education institution. This is an opportunity for TUFS staff to further their understanding of Japanese universities, their own jobs, and to further improve their own language and operational skills.
From mid-July until mid-August, TUFS staff member Mr. TANIGUCHI Chikoh (Global Admission Office) was dispatched for stage three training to the School of Oriental and African Studies University of London (SOAS). During his training Mr. Taniguchi participated in a 4-week “Global Administrative Exchange Program”, a 3-week Summer Course Program (language training) and a 1-week work shadowing program. On Thursday the 5th of September, he gave a presentation on his experience at a debriefing session at TUFS.
The TUFS Administrative Staff Overseas Training Program is an opportunity for TUFS staff to broaden their horizons through experiencing diversity at an overseas administrative organization or higher education institution. The TUFS International Management Office plans to continue enhancing international training opportunities, both domestic and abroad.
