About TALETE    

TALETE, conceived by the University of Trento and Centro per la Cooperazione Internazionale along the lines of honours programmes in British universities, is an advanced training programme that students can take in addition to their studies to give them an international dimension and take a look at the world of cooperation.

Why TALETE?

The complex interdependence of the global context calls more and more for professionals who are able to deal with very complicated situations that characterise our times.

Alongside this, people with specific technical skills who are open to work in an international setting are in high demand on the labour market, provided that they have the cross-sector abilities that are necessary to work in demanding settings. 

The sector of international development cooperation offers many opportunities to develop soft skills, giving students the chance to expand their horizon while maintaining the positive attitude required to establish positive relationships with others.

Objectives

  • Make the participants’ profiles more international-oriented
  • Provide the participants with intercultural and cross-sector skills
  • Ensure that the participants’ profiles are more attractive for the areas of international cooperation, intercultural programmes, community development, local activities and, in particular, for the world of work and companies that operate at international level.

Programme details

The programme awards 24 university credits (CFU) that add up to those awarded by the students’ course (and corresponds to 5 month of extra work). The participants have two years to complete the programme.
