It might be a good time to reflect on the outcomes of a 3-year long agreement that Oracle Academy signed with the Ministry of Education Montenegro.

Over the three year partnership Oracle Academy committed to train 300 teachers from Montengro, however to date 355 teachers from Montenegro have been successfully trained through the delivery of over 15 training events, thanks to this agreement with Montenegrin Ministry of Education, and their support.

The initial trainings were a combination of virtual and in-class events, and recent training events finished fully online, to allow teacher to learn from home in accordance with the current circumstances.

As a result of this collaboration teachers were able to attend Oracle Academy training classes from a variety of curriculum in technologies including Database Foundations, Database Design and Programming with SQL, Java Fundamentals, Java Foundations and Java Programming. As a next step students taught by these teachers will be encouraged to complete the Oracle Certified Junior Certification in Database or Java Foundations for a successful start to their professional life.

Students will receive hands-on experience with the latest technologies, helping to make them college and career ready in the digital era.

Montenegrin Minister of Education, Dr Damir Šehović said: “We are especially proud that our partner is Oracle, one of the global leaders in software production, whose mission is to improve education in the field of computer science through the Oracle Academy.  

Oracle Academy supports  3,5 million students and nearly 12.000 institutions in 120 countries, and since 2018, Montenegro has been there as well. We were together improving education in the field of computer science in Montenegro, and helped students and teachers to first acquire knowledge, and then using it create something completely new, which will help them in teaching.“
