The Competence Centre is a team of more than twenty people who work together to develop adult training and university education programmes that meet the needs of the market. We build upon a solid expertise in pedagogical engineering and educational design, a high academic quality regarding teaching, as well as efficient and modern learning platforms.
We offer solid expertise in pedagogical engineering to our learners. Our main strengths lie in our ability to offer rich and diversified learning paths, an immersive and stimulating educational experience, while putting the learner at the heart of the training system.
The Competence Centre is organised into centres of expertise specialising in specific sectors. Each team carries out continuous sector monitoring, meets frequently with major private and institutional players and develops partnerships with other universities. This internal organisation means that the Competence Centre not only has a good knowledge of the needs of each economic sector, but also an educational approach that demonstrates cutting-edge skills in project management and the integration of innovative digital solutions, and offers a multidisciplinary, integrated and complementary service approach.
UNIVERSITY TRAININGS CLUSTER
With its extensive experience in the development and organisation of lifelong learning activities for adults, the University Training division has established itself as a strategic partner of the University of Luxembourg.
The University Certificates division has expanded to include the organisation of in-house training courses for University of Luxembourg staff.
Our team is highly regarded for its multi-disciplinary skills and proven expertise in pedagogical engineering for adults.
We have broadened and deepened our network with the University’s faculties and departments, and with other experts in our respective fields. We intend to continue in this vein and further expand our training offering.
Through our passion for learning, our ambition is to enable organizations and individuals to achieve their goals.
The Bachelors Cluster is responsible for the general organisation of the Bachelor in Animation and the Bachelor in Accounting and Taxation.
Initially, these 2 bachelors were designed to enable BTS (Brevet de Technicien Supérieur) students to continue their studies and obtain a Bachelor’s degree. However, in order to open these study programmes to other candidates, a new curriculum is currently being developed.
The Bachelor Cluster has graduated its first class of students in accounting and finance. The partnerships with The School of Business and Management and the Lycée des Arts et Métiers are the source of an active and fruitful collaboration that enables us to offer unique training courses adapted to employability on the Luxembourg labour market.
Today we are witnessing a major change in the context in which healthcare professionals operate (fast-changing regulations, the emergence of telemedicine and digitalisation of services, an ageing population, a shift towards ambulatory care, home hospitalisation, etc.).
The Healthcare cluster, which has been present for many years in the hospital sector, has responded to this evolution with the multiplication of its partnerships and expanded its range of services to the healthcare sector.
Our training courses are recognised for their level of excellency and the expert quality of the speakers.
In addition to the traditional training courses, the Competence Centre disposes of the skills, tools and infrastructure to design, produce and distribute original and varied e-learning content, be it for completely online or blended training on its own learning platform.
The Digital Learning & ICT Cluster also offers training courses for professionals as well as teachers, researchers and university students, in collaboration with the Cisco Networking Academy and NVIDIA. In parallel, the cluster also designs MOOCs, thus asserting a positioning focused on digital transformation and artificial intelligence.
We are developing a lifelong education offer that is both original and innovative in the fields of adult education and ICT.
The legal sector faces an increasingly demanding and competitive market. Legal firms and departments must respond to a shortage of qualified profiles by focusing on recruitment, expertise and continuous training. At the same time, professionals in the sector need to demonstrate cross-disciplinary skills with their clients, and their role and activities are changing more and more every day. That’s why it’s more important than ever to provide them with training in advisory skills, knowledge management and the specificities of Luxembourg’s environment.
The Competence Centre Legal Cluster’s training offer is aimed at lawyers, legal professionals and paralegals and responds directly to their requests for targeted, tailor-made quality training in a variety of teaching formats.
The Finance Cluster’s mission is to support the key areas of development of the Luxembourg economy in this field.
The Luxembourg financial centre is going through considerable changes in the regulatory environment, an increased demand for qualified profiles, the introduction of new working methods and a fast growth in digitalisation. The aim of the Competence Centre training offer is to respond to these challenges by collaborating closely with the University of Luxembourg and through partnerships with key stakeholders in the sector.
The Finance Cluster addresses the demands of civil society and businesses and offers high-level, specific, and high-quality training, both in traditional formats and through digital technologies.
Next to our clusters, we also have a supporting team:
- Human Resources
This cross-functional team is essential for the Competence Centre’s operational efficiency.
