He said so on Saturday, during the closing of the training organized by his institution for its academic, scientific, administrative and technical staff, at the Shaumba site in the commune of Lingwala. This training, he said, was intended to explain the reciprocal recognition of qualifications based on the credit transfer and accumulation system, as well as to put in place a quality assurance policy for institutions and trainings. DG Casimir Ilunga Kasambay also thanked the participants for their diligence and patience that they showed during the two days of training. He also thanked Professor Arthur Yenga Maombe Neko, the trainer of this session for his availability and professionalism.
Call for the professionalization of training taking into account the logistics of companies
The trainer of this session, Pr Arthur Yenga Maombe Neko, meanwhile, invited his peers to professionalize the training by taking into account the logistics of companies, and by creating partnerships with companies. He underlined that this new LMD system promotes the success of students to the maximum, by providing refresher courses for those who would be in difficulty in a field, but also, by multiplying the information and orientation structures at their intention.
Addressing the point on continuous training, partnership and digitization, the speaker of the day urged participants to learn English in order to solve and find money from partners, acquire IT tools for staff and students, promoting digitization. “During these two days, we made sure that the participants understood the origin of this reform and the reason for the integration of the latter in the country and its advantages in order to allow teachers to be able to apply the measures of the Ministry of Higher and University Education, by teaching differently », insisted Professor Arthur Yenga. For him, this new reform has several advantages, in particular, the harmonization of the education system of the DRC with other education systems in the world, the mobility of teachers and students in order to train students, but also to establish the adequacy between training and the job market, before concluding that « the engine of this system is the skills-based approach ».
This training was marked by the awarding of certificates to the 76 participants, in particular ISIPA staff, teachers from the Higher Institute of Arts and Crafts (ISAM), the National Pedagogical University (UPN) and the University of Kinshasa (UNIKIN) having taken part in this training seminar, it is reported.
