Project summary

Dynamics of the labour market force both employees and unemployed to adopt their qualifications to employers’ new needs. Part-time studies (PT) aim to provide, to mostly adult employed students, appropriate modes of study. Short cycle higher education programs (SCHE) provide mostly professional studies, lasting up to two years, aiming to prepare students for specific jobs. They are suitable to students that cannot get bachelor degrees and want to get qualifications for employment.

This project aims to propose, currently missing, the legislation framework for both PT & SCHE studies in Serbia (EQF Level 5).

Objectives

Specific objectives of the project are the following:

1. To define the legal framework supporting the development and implementation of part-time (PT) studies and short cycle (SCHE) studies in higher education in Serbia, as there is no legislation for PT studies and EQF Level 5 in Serbia. The proposed legislation framework will help authorities to realize two action plans specified for these studies in the Strategy on Education Development till 2020 in the Republic of Serbia;

2. To adopt and develop online and face-to-face (F2F) learning methodologies and technologies for PT & SCHE, suitable for adults working students, expected to be the most interested for these studies;

3. To set pilot implementations of five PT&SCHE online and face-to-face programs to test project outcomes. After one year of pilot implementation, an analysis of the effectiveness of the proposed legislation, adopted pedagogical and technological solutions will be generated, together with the guidelines to designers of PT & STHE studies based on gained experience.
