Centre for Competence Development

Personal Growth Career Development Management and Leadership skills Pedagogical competencies Networking

The mission of CERPEK is to develop professional competencies so that MU employees can fully realize their potential and contribute to the development of their workplaces. CERPEK specializes in developing competencies needed for leadership, personal growth, and pedagogical skills.

In 2024, CERPEK introduced quotas for the Manager and Talent programs, significantly limiting the number of participants for each MU workplace. If you are interested in participating in these programs, consult it with your superior first. Your superior can nominate you for participation in 2024 when there is another call. The nearest opportunity to participate in these courses is in 2025. For more information, please get in touch with the Learning and Development Coordinator, Kateřina Wolfová.
