TPA – Innovation Centre for Transforming Education | Moravian-Silesia Region| (

The aim of the project is to increase the employability of graduates on the labour market and to support their ability to respond flexibly to dynamically evolving conditions and employer’s needs. The intention is to ensure that graduates leave their studies equipped with relevant professional knowledge, soft skills and language competences. This objective can only be achieved by improving the quality and attractiveness of educational materials, developing and supporting entrepreneurship (e.g. start-ups), linking the school system with innovation leaders in the region and building technical facilities for these activities.

Main role of the MTA

Moravian-Silesian Technological Academy (MTA)

The MTA’s task is to transform secondary vocational education by creating innovative educational programmes (EduBoxes). These learning materials will be developed and used as a tool to raise the level of teaching of vocational subjects in secondary schools and to facilitate the preparation of teachers so that they can more easily respond to the increasing demands and requirements of employers in the context of constantly modernizing technologies. The inclusion of soft skills, with an emphasis on flexibility and a willingness for lifelong learning, will also be an integral part.
