Overview

The course is based on the constructivist learning principle, which allows for active and interactive participation, as a result of which participants will be able to integrate new knowledge, understanding and skills into their existing repertoire.

Today’s educators are on a compelling quest to find ways to hold higher expectations for pupils, improve teaching and learning pedagogies, and increase pupil learning and achievement outcomes. Much is being made known of the value of professional learning communities (PLCs) in education.

The notion of the ‘learning organisation’ or the ‘learning community’ has become a buzzword in a number of countries. Various documents and publications go a long way to support the argument that the way in which an organisation learns is a key index to its effectiveness and potential to innovation and growth.

This course will lead the learners to,

  1. Develop a clearer understanding behind motivation in work practices.
  2. Develop a repertoire of ways of nurturing and empowering teachers to work collectively and collaboratively.
  3. Explore the various components necessary to turn schools into communities of learning.
  4. Address specific questions, namely: how to clarify and communicate the purpose, vision and values of our College/school? How to initiate, implement and sustain a change process? How to shape the organisational culture and provide structures that support the culture we seek? How to create collaborative processes that result in both individual and organisational learning? How to foster an environment that is results oriented yet encourages experimentation?
  5. Have the opportunity of exchanging information, ideas, experiences and networking during the seminar.

Malta Qualifications Framework

The Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF) assists in making the Maltese qualifications system easier to understand and review, and more transparent at a national and international level. The Malta Qualifications Framework is also a referencing tool that helps to describe and compare both national and foreign qualifications to promote quality, transparency and mobility of qualifications in all types of education. It is mainly referenced to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) as well as to other non-European qualifications frameworks.

The reference levels make it easier to understand what a learner with a qualification related to the Malta Qualifications Framework knows, understands and is able to do. These levels are neutral reference points to be used for all qualifications irrespective of whether they arise from academic or vocational education; formal, informal and non-formal learning.  These are useful for education and training providers as they describe the knowledge, skills and competences and a set of learning outcomes which indicate to the learner the end of a learning process.

Malta established its Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF) in 2007 and the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) is the local competent authority to recognise qualifications and accredit courses against the Malta Qualifications Framework.
