Career Development and Progress
The professional career development of the Academic Staff members and their involvement in research, either on an individual basis or under the umbrella of CTL Eurocollege, as well as their participation in research programmes in collaboration with other Higher Education Institutions is something which is very much encouraged by CTL Eurocollege management.
The following career scale gives a clear picture of the professional development of our Academic Staff members. In constructing the scale three parameters were taken into consideration, academic qualification, teaching experience in Higher Education Institutions, and participation in research programmes combined with publication activity in recognized international academic journals or other media of recognized value.
The College Administration requires that academics publish one paper in a recognized journal, one article on conference proceedings and participate in at least one international conference every year. In addition, it is recommended that faculty and staff engage in research projects with international partners from institutions, businesses, public agencies and communities.
Evaluation of faculty for the ranking
An internal process is in place concerning the ranking evaluation of the faculty. A committee that is consisted of one faculty member (Associate or Professor) from the home institution and two external examiners (Associate or Professor) from local and international institutions evaluates the prospective faculty for a job advancement. The committee examines the candidates based on designed criteria, prepares and submits a report to the college administration. The criteria includes the number and the quality of the publications (H index factor), the academic journals, involvement in the community, professional initiatives in research, peer reviewing assignments and student project supervision (doctorate and master final projects). Depending on the committee report the college administration decides on the advancement and benefits of the prospective faculty.
