At Global Education and Training, we have more than 25 years of experience designing and running comprehensive, high-quality training programs. We are the best at what we do. Our programs are inclusive and customizable to your needs. After completing one of our programs, our participants return to their home country and enact positive change in their communities and/or companies.

All program participants enjoy a unique experience in the state of Illinois–having the opportunity to study in the heartland of the United States–while becoming part of the Illinois community.

Steps to Develop a Program

We offer customized programs to match specific needs and interests of our partners, and program details may vary. Program development is an on-going, collaborative process with our staff and participants. Here are common steps to developing a program with us:

1. Contact GET

Send us an email to express your interest in developing a program.

2. GET Connected

GET will assign a dedicated staff member as a principal point of contact (liaison) to facilitate programmatic development.

3. GET Detailed

We want to learn as much as possible about your interests, in order to make sure we will design a program to meets your participants’ training outcomes. Please identify these key program details:

  • Training topic
  • Program type
  • Preferred dates
  • Number of participants
  • Forms of funding (e.g., institutional, governmental, industry, personal)

4. GET Trained

Once we have developed an understanding of the program content and features, GET will connect international partners and/or academic experts at Illinois, as well as professionals/companies in our geographic region, to create an optional training plan.

Inquiries Welcome

We welcome program inquiries from Illinois units and departments, prospective program partners, including international businesses, banks, government ministries and university or secondary schools who want to enhance the skills of their employees and students.
