Training Programs

Leval Mikeladze Diplomatic Institute targets three audiences: diplomats, civil servants and other persons concerned.

The main challenge before the Institute is to ensure the advanced training and professional development of Georgian diplomats. Therefore, the staff of the Institute is oriented towards creating tailor-made programmes and courses based on modern teaching methods.

We also design training programmes that meet the interests of the broader audience. Lectures and workshops are delivered by the leading experts. We offer both: paid and free courses for the interested audience.
