Department for Teacher Training  –  DPPD

– Postgraduate Program –



Starting with the academic year 2009-2010, within the “Dimitrie Cantemir” University of Târgu-Mureş, the Department for Teacher Training – D.P.P.D. The quality of institution providing initial and continuous training programs for teaching staff, was granted to the University “Dimitrie Cantemir” by the Ministry of Education by Order no. 30127 of January 14th, 2010.


The Teaching Staff Training Department has assumed, since its establishment, a didactic and scientific research mission in the field of teacher training, by promoting a modern, student-centered educational training, adapted to the European requirements regarding psycho-pedagogical training programs and pragmatically oriented towards the real needs of society and the current priorities of education.

Since its establishment, the Teaching Staff Training Department has followed its mission, providing psycho-pedagogical training programs for those interested in embracing the teaching career.

Hundreds of students from all over the country, but also other European Union countries, who complete one or both psycho-pedagogical training programs each academic year, illustrate the appreciation that the Teaching Staff Training Department enjoys and the solid reputation it has achieved to build all these years. They also represent the guarantee of the experience that the “teachers of teachers” within the D.P.P.D. have in the training of future teachers.

By implementing these training programs, accredited by the Ministry of Education, “Dimitrie Cantemir” University of Târgu-Mureş reaffirms its mission as an institution that responsibly assumes the important role it plays in ensuring the quality of education, in this difficult period that crosses Romanian education.
