MQF IS Training

MQF IS Training

On 17th and 18th March 17 representatives from the Bureau for Education Services, Examination Centre and the Vocational Education Centre met to be trained on, and try out, the new MQF Information System. The Information System will bring together information about the MQF and about all the qualifications that are available in the country (at all levels and through all providers) in a single place. This should make it much easier for members of the public and those who need information about the MQF and about qualifications available to locate the full range of information. The information system can be found at www.cko.edu.me.

Graduates for the 21st Century

What attributes and values will graduates in Montenegro need in the coming decade? We cannot predict the future but we must help our students anticipate and prepare for active citizenship and continuing employability. In this process both students and their professors will need to encounter new ways of working, and deal with ‘troublesome knowledge’. In a knowledge-based global economy characterised by uncertainty, complexity, risk and speed, there needs to be a new emphasis on enquiry, ‘research-mindedness’, problem-formulation and interdisciplinary creativity. These qualities are valuable for business and industry as well as good citizenship. Examples of such approaches from different universities will be discussed, with the challenge also for professors to become ‘Academics for the 21st century’.
