Tvoy Kurs Receives Support from the Government of the Bashkortostan Republic
 
The republican special-purpose program “People’s Third Age University” for 2011-2013, adopted by the government of Bashkortostan on 17 May 2011, seeks to achieve important goals, which will ensure a richer and more fulfilling life experience for local senior citizens by enhancing their living standards, providing them with better conditions for self-education and self-improvement, and enabling them to become full participants of public life through acquiring modern knowledge and skills and enjoying new forms of community interaction.

In order to provide better training and retraining opportunities for senior citizens, the Educational Center at the Retraining Institute of M. Akmulla Bashkortostan State Pedagogical University, with the support of the Department for Labor and Social Security in the Kirov district of Ufa, has launched the Tvoy Kurs initiative, recruiting training groups with the help of local social security departments and awarding alumni with Tvoy Kurs Certificates as well as official certificates issued by the Retraining Institute of M. Akmulla Pedagogical University.

Tvoy Kurs trainees acquire basic computer skills, learning to work with MS Office applications, to create different types of documents, and to use e-mail, the Internet and Skype. Most of the seminars and DL modules have been selected or tweaked in response to trainees’ requests. By 20 December 2011, the Tvoy Kurs Center of M. Akmulla Bashkortostan State Pedagogical University will have provided digital literacy training for 160 senior citizens.

Tvoy Kurs sessions take place on the university’s premises, facilitated by highly qualified computer science specialists
