The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (Mcast) is involved in an Erasmusplus project aimed at pilot testing the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) in the Russian and Uzbek education systems.

The second meeting of the RUECVET pro­ject was recently held in Kokand, Uzbekistan, during which representatives from the pro­ject partners from Malta, Cyprus, Latvia, Russia and Uzbekistan shared best practices and tools to building a methodology to successfully pilot ECVET in Russia and Uzbekistan. The meeting also served as an opportunity to share cultures and experiences and build good relationships across borders.

Mcast was represented at the meeting by Connie Livori and Kenny Muscat from the college’s Curriculum Department, which is responsible for the designing of new programmes and units and updating existing ones through regular cyclical reviews in collaboration with lecturing staff and industry. The department also oversees the development, implementation and assessment of key skills units across all levels.

In the past few years, the Curriculum Department has been involved in several projects supported by the European Social Fund, including the design of home-grown courses for Mcast; the upskilling of  individuals in several skills leading to possible employment in various sectors; intergenerational learning, including people aged over 55, and the development of the new ECVET manual together with the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE).
