About us
The Siauliai State College was established in 2002 after the reorganisation of the medical colleges and technical schools. Today it is the leading state higher education institution of Northern Lithuania that provides study programmes, high quality courses, knowledge and practical skills coherence. We are an intellectual organisation which develops social partnerships, creates a stimulating academic environment and develops human values.

Our main activity is providing college degree programs. In addition to this core activity, the institution aims to empower the region's employees by providing retraining and skills upgrading services through non-formal education programmes and basic training programmes for visually handicapped people. The college is actively involved in the life of the region by developing educational and counselling activities aimed at improving the competitiveness of the region, developing partnership networks in Lithuania and abroad. The college offers 27 study programmes (6 in the Faculty of Health Care, 21 in the Business and Technology Department). It embraces 2624 students and 305 employees, of whom 205 academic.

Why we participate in Best Agers Lighthouses
Almost one third of the employees of the college (50 teachers and 28 administrative and service staff) are of senior age (55+). After the evaluation of employee's age structure and realising the importance of the age management nowadays, the organisation has decided to look for a better use of knowledge and experiences of educated and highly motivated senior professionals. Through the interventions implemented during the project "Best Agers Lighthouses", Siauliai State College expects to identify and implement specific age management strategies and to adapt successful HR management models, methods and best practices in order to reform its working conditions and environment.
