The pedagogical competencies of higher education teachers and assistants is a requisite for the development of student competencies, as pedagogues can only share their knowledge and skills optimally if they are acquainted with the methods of a quality learning process, in addition to mastering their discipline. For this reason CDPE endeavours in particular to educate FPA employees in foreign languages, to provide a knowledge map as a transfer of knowledge between employees, to establish inter-subject connections, pedagogical-didactic training for pedagogues, etc.
Tutoring is a form of help for and development of students, which the University of Ljubljana is implementing and developing in several fields: introductory, course and scientific research tutorship, tutorship for new students, for students with special needs and for foreign students. CDPE coordinates the entire tutorship system at the FPA.
Several extracurricular activities (choir, sports activities, debate club, case study section etc.) are traditionally active at the FPA; with these, students primarily strengthen their social competencies in conjunction with the contents of FPA study programmes.
The Alumni Club of the FPA unites graduates of all the Faculty's study programmes. It provides a stimulating environment for maintaining a connection between graduates of the Faculty of Public Administration and teachers, assistants and partners of the Faculty. It enables the personal and professional development of individuals and organisations and promotes administrative knowledge and the achievements of its members within the Club's circle. It sees to the reputation of the profession and education provided by the FPA and promotes the development of its educational and research activity.
