Work Modalities of teachers and associates at FCA

Unlike a large number of higher education institutions in our country and region, including those founded by the state, FCA has found the best work model, in which our employees achieve a balance between private life and work and make stimulating earnings

Within the framework of several different modalities of work engagement that are available to employees, in accordance with the regulations in the field of higher education, our teachers modulate their job responsibilities by building work engagement according to their own requirements, i.e. their needs.

Model 1: Full course load

includes arriving at the Faculty’s locations during the semester and exam periods on the days when classes, exercises, exams, consultations with students, on-call and committee meetings are held, of which the employees with full course load are a part.

Model 2: Lower course load

includes arriving at the Faculty’s locations during the semester and exam periods on the days when classes, exercises, exams, consultations with students, on-call and committee meetings are held, of which the employees with lower course load are a part.

Model 3: Combination of work at ITS and FCA

implies work at ITS and the Faculty of Contemporary Arts in Belgrade, with divided working hours.

Model 4: Combination of work at FCA and in LINK Educational Alliance

includes work within the international educational alliance through a combination of basic and supplementary work.

FCA has chosen locations for its premises in the inner city core of Belgrade, without regional centers, so that employees can enjoy the convenience of easily accessible city locations.

Our employees manage their own time!

LINK Educational Alliance educational centers and services in support of ensuring the success of our teachers and associates

The regulation in the field of higher education is explicit about the conditions for acquiring teaching titles and advancing to higher teaching positions. Unlike other higher education institutions where teachers and associates are left to their own possibilities of organizing scientific and professional research and promoting the results of scientific, professional, and artistic research, our teachers and associates are provided with assistance in providing the necessary references and competencies needed to fulfill the obligations of teachers and advance to higher teaching and associate positions.

Center for Research and Publication (CRP), within the LINK Educational Alliance, provides comprehensive support, rich resources, and modern tools that enable the flawless development of individual and team scientific research. The best conditions allow teachers to carry out all phases of scientific studies without difficulty and in accordance with the highest standards, starting from research work, through organizing participation in scientific conferences, to publishing and presenting results.

The LINK Educational Alliance Project Center helps teachers, pupils, and students of the LINK Educational Alliance to better understand the possibilities offered by the academic and professional association and inclusion in European academic and professional programs. Since the beginning of the establishment and gathering of a team of project experts within the Project Center at the end of 2019, significant results have been achieved when it comes to encouraging the participation of schools and other institutions within the LINKgroup in international projects and those financed from EU funds.

FCA is one of the first private schools with access to the prestigious Web of Science index databases and services

LINK edu Alliance, under whose auspices is the Faculty of Contemporary Arts, is officially the first and only private educational system in Serbia that has access to excellent services on the Web of Science platform.

The three-year Agreement between the LINK edu Alliance and the company Clarivates, which owns Web of Science, provides teachers, students, and associates with equal opportunities for advancement and development.

Before that, only state universities, institutes, and higher education institutions had access to WOS services and bases in Serbia, while private higher education institutions, faculties, and scientific institutions did not have this possibility, which made it difficult to achieve a satisfactory level of quality of work and training.

The collaboration between the LINK edu Alliance and the Web of Science platform allows teachers of LINK institutions, including teachers at FCA, to gain access to scientific publications with a high level of reference, which helps unhindered scientific development and professional advancement. Also, it contributes to the enrichment of teaching and learning content, which will follow the latest scientific achievements and thus provide students with the most up-to-date knowledge.

Teachers and associates’ responsibilities

  • Implementation of all forms of teaching with students on basic and master’s vocational studies according to the established schedule, the curriculum in accordance with approved teaching calendars, class schedule, exam periods, and exams;
  • Conducting various forms of knowledge testing and exams;
  • Work on the improvement of teaching performance;
  • Making proposals for the improvement of existing teaching curriculums;
  • Reviewing seminar papers, assignments, projects, and other student papers.

We follow the best world practices in order to ensure optimal conditions for the work of teachers and associates at FCA

In the table that was created as a result of primary and secondary research, by analyzing the content, case studies, and the results of a survey conducted among teachers and associates employed in our educational system and other educational systems, the conditions provided to employees in higher education by higher education institutions in Serbia are compared with the best world practices and FCA practices. 

From the graphic representation of the results of the primary and secondary research, it is evident that FCA offers its employees better conditions compared to public schools, and equally good or better conditions compared to the best world practices.
