Graduation Cap

The mortarboard is generally believed by scholars[who?] to have developed from the biretta, a similar-looking hat worn by Roman Catholic clergy. The biretta itself may have been a development of the Roman pileus quadratus, a type of skullcap with superposed square and tump (meaning small mound). A reinvention of this type of cap is known as the Bishop Andrewes cap.[7]:22–23 The Italian biretta is a word derived from berretto, which is derived itself from the Latin birrus and the Greek pyrros, both meaning "red." The cone-shaped red (seldom in black) biretta, related to the ancient Etruscan tutulus and the Roman pileus, was used in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries to identify humanists, students, artists, and learned and blooming youth in general. The shape and the colour conveyed meaning: Red was considered for a long time the royal power, whether because it was difficult to afford vestments of such solid and brilliant dye or because the high symbolic meaning of blood and life, thus the power over life and death.

job evaluation is a systematic way of determining the value/worth of a job in relation to other jobs in an organization. It tries to make a systematic comparison between jobs to assess their relative worth for the purpose of establishing a rational pay structure.
Job evaluation needs to be differentiated from job analysis. Job analysis is a systematic way of gathering information about a job. Every job evaluation method requires at least some basic job analysis in order to provide factual information about the jobs concerned. Thus, job evaluation begins with job analysis and ends at that point where the worth of a job is ascertained for achieving pay equity between jobs and different roles.


The process of job evaluation involves the following steps:
  • Gaining acceptance: Before undertaking job evaluation, top management must explain the aims and uses of the programme to the employees and unions. To elaborate the program further,presentations could be made. Letters, booklets could be used to classify all relevant aspects of the job evaluation programme.
  • Creating job evaluation committee: It is not possible for a single person to evaluate all the key jobs in an organization. Usually a job evaluation committee consisting of experienced employees, union representatives and HR

The University of Zagreb (CroatianSveučilište u Zagrebupronounced [sʋeǔt͡ʃiliːʃte u zǎːgrebu]LatinUniversitas Studiorum Zagrabiensis) is the largest Croatian university and the oldest continuously operating university in the area covering Central Europe south of Vienna and all of Southeastern Europe.[3]
History of the University began on September 23, 1669, when the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I issued a decree granting the establishment of the Jesuit Academy of the Royal Free City of Zagreb. Decree was accepted at the Council of the Croatian Kingdom on November 3, 1671. The Academy was run by the Jesuits for more than a century until the order was dissolved by Pope Clement XIV in 1773. In 1776 Empress Maria Theresa issued a decree founding the Royal Academy of Science which succeeded the previous Jesuit Academy. Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer proposed to the Croatian Parliament in 1861 founding of a

The European Commission cooperates closely with universities external link which provide conference interpreting training to ensure high level professional standards.

Although the Commission does not itself organise training courses in interpretation, we provide both on-site and remote assistance by experienced trainers, as well as grants to universities and bursaries for students.

On-site assistance
Training assistanceexternal link

Upon request, we provide on-site training at our partner universities conducted by DG Interpretation’s trainers with years of experience in conference interpreting and practical training techniques. This form of training can be tailored to the specific needs of the universities.

Study visits to DG Interpretationexternal link

Visits to DG Interpretation allow student interpreters to familiarise themselves with the workings of the Institutions and, in particular, the work of interpreters in meetings. The students sit in on meetings and interpret in dummy booths with their trainers, thereby acquiring a taste of their future working lives.

SCiCLOUD consists of a wide range of digital resources (such as training videos and the Speech Repository), as well as interactive services in the form of virtual classes.

Virtual classes

We offer interactive virtual classes where our experienced interpretation trainers guide and assess students remotely via video conferencing. Naturally, Virtual Classes require an existing, compatible video-conference system (more info: SCIC-VIRTUAL-CLASS@ec.europa.euexternal link). 25 universities across Europe have already joined our 'virtual classroom'.

Speech Repository 2.0

The Speech Repositoryexternal link is an e-learning tool developed by DG Interpretation which provides tailor-made training material for conference interpreting students and trainers. It contains a collection of video-recorded speeches organised by language, level of difficulty, type of interpreting mode and subject. You have immediate access to more than 3,000 speeches but using the e-learning tool requires registration.


SCICtrain is a brand new collection of video modules which cover the wide array of interpretation techniques, tools and resources through demonstrations, personal tips, and brief 'lectures' from our experienced professional interpreters and trainers.

Podcastsexternal link

European Commission interpreter podcasts address different issues in interpreting, some technical, some more philosophical. Listen to senior professionals talk about their experience and their work in international conferences.

Grants to Universities
We provide financial support to a selection of projects to ensure that a sufficient number of qualified conference interpreters are available to enable the European Union's institutions to function properly: e.g. post-graduate conference interpreting courses, cross-border cooperation projects and/or innovative projects enhancing the quality or the development of new technologies in conference interpreting teaching.

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict.[1] Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Rationalizations of such behavior sometimes include
