The Moscow’s Center for Certification of Teacher Qualifications at MCU is an innovative space aimed at providing a high-level assessment of teacher qualifications and development of professional competences and qualities in teachers. The Center’s work is based on the efficient methodological system that has been successfully applied within the project ‘Moscow’s Teacher Certificate’.

The Center’s activities:
- Certification of students and graduates majoring in education science
