Identification of training needs

The Master's programme aims to provide specialised training on subjects and skills for which there is an important need: thus, it is essential to deal with external bodies and individuals and the world of work, in order to define which needs and skills are required It is advisable to draft a brief summary document containing the information acquired following discussions with external subjects and which can highlight the need to set up a course that satisfies requirements.

Planning the course

When planning the course, the proposing teacher draws up the following documents (the basic models available and prepared by the Central Administration are available at:

-Teaching Regulations

-Financial estimate

- Any agreements with other organisations for implementation of the course

In order to prepare the documentation, the teacher contacts the Teaching and Student Services Office of the Vercelli campus, or the contact person at the Master’s Helpdesk (currently Angelica Venturini), attaching a report (if it has been prepared) of the training needs to be satisfied by the course.

In order to highlight some important issues that could arise in this phase, the Master’s Planning Handbook is available.

Following discussions with the Development and Quality Assurance Staff of Higher Education and International Mobility teaching projects, the documentation must be submitted for approval by the Department Board and, subsequently, by the Board of Governors and Academic Senate, before issue of the Rector's Decree for establishment and activation of the degree.


It is important to plan and implement a marketing and promotion strategy as soon as possible aimed at identifying users interested in the course: contacts and sponsorship of companies in the sector, advertising, etc.

Budget of the Master’s

Following publication of the rectoral decree for establishment and activation of the Master’s, it is essential to make an appointment with the Resources Management Office of Vercelli in order to activate the budget office of the course which will receive the payments made by those enrolled in the Master’s.

Planning of the educational programme

In order to be able to organise the educational programme of the course on time, it is important that the Manager of the Master’s send the contact person of the Master’s Helpdesk the names of those who will provide educational activities, indicating the number of hours assigned, date or dates of the activity, and the hourly fee (inclusive of charges due by the university).

The indication of teaching provision, at least for the first month of teaching on the Master's, must be sent to the contact person at the Master's Helpdesk 2 weeks before the date of the last Department Council meeting prior to the start of teaching on the Master's.

It is also advisable to communicate the provision of teaching activities of the Master’s at least 3 months before the beginning of teaching.

For assignments lasting more than 15 hours, the request for the Call for Teachers must be made at least 4 months before the scheduled date for start of the teaching activity.
