Title Full proposal for certification of the IC study program in Slovakia
Product Type transparency and certification
Full proposal for certification consitutes one of the means aimed at accomplishing the long-term objectives of the LEGEND project. Thanks to the continuing offer of education activites for target groups, the IC method will remain present and be dissaminated among target groups.
Centire as the initiator and lead partner of the LEGEND project having trained lecturers at the disposal will guarantee the quality and sustainability of the offered educational activities. Kosice IT Valley may potentially cooperate on the IC topic expansion in the East Slovak region.
The interest raised during the trainings and final conference shows the potential of the IC topic for Slovakia. The accreditation of the program increases the significance of the topic and confirms its quality.
ull proposal for certification of the IC study program in Slovakia represents one of the key aspect for project sustainability. In case the submitted programmes are approved by the accreditation committee, they will be offered to the target groups as part of lifelong learning within VET. The proposed non-modules programmes for accreditation comprise:
• Intellectual Capital Management for SMEs
• Intellectual Capital Management for research and education institutions
Centire, as the lead partner, was in charge of submitting the full proposal for certification due to a single applicant rule. Nonetheless, it is expected that Centire will offer education activities in cooperation with Kosice IT Valley. In such a way scaling up of the project will be proportionally carried out in both the Bratislava and the Kosice regions.
After completing the training materials in August 2015, the preparation process of the full certification proposal was commenced. The relevant department of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic was consulted and it provided a preliminary approval of the trainings' set-up. The submitted learning content is identical with that conveyed at the trainings carried out within the frameworks of the LEGEND project.
The documentation required for accreditation comprised information on: the program title, its organizational form (present /distance learning), target groups, required educational level of participants, graduate profiles, teaching tools and the program scope. In addition, detailed CVs of the key expert and lecturers complemented the dossier.
Eventually, the proposals received recommendation for approval and was finally approved by the accreditation committee in December 2015.
