Overview

The course is intended to offer participants support in meeting the demands of a multicultural setting/environment/classroom.

With increased human mobility and increasingly thick networks of communication, the common social fact of unequal educational experiences and outcomes is increasingly the subject of transnational dialogue. The course stems out from the need to equip educators with the knowledge, aptitude and skills necessary to meet the increasingly challenging task of teaching across multicultural setting/environment populations.

For such processes to take place schools need to have strong value based leadership teams which promote equity and social justice, with a focus on inclusionary practices rather than a series of attempts at assimilative practices. Course participants aspiring towards leadership positions will have opportunity to challenge existing leadership practices and be in a better position to resolve conflict arising from cultural disparities. The course will serve as a springboard for those seeking positive change in setting/environments by addressing the needs of all staff, parents and students irrespective of race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic or cultural origin.

Knowledge is gained through effective group sharing experiences. Participants will enhance their aptitudes and skills necessary to deal with cultural disparities present in the setting/environment/ classroom and effectively deal with them for the benefit of learners and the whole learning community. Intercultural competencies are then gained through role play opportunities and case studies.

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.
