    Artykuł prezentuje problem tolerancji nauczycieli akademickich jako normy cywilizacyjnej, regulatora relacji między wszystkimi podmiotami procesu edukacyjnego, co pozwala zachować różnorodność złożonego systemu, jakim jest środowisko międzykulturowe uczelni. Przedstawiono w nim wyniki badań diagnostycznych dotyczących tworzenia różnych elementów kompetencji społeczno-kulturowych nauczycieli i studentów. Ponadto zwrócono uwagę na tzw. algorytm rozwoju tolerancji nauczyciela akademickiego w warunkach nowoczesnego uniwersytetu jako osobowo-ideologicznej podstawy jego działalności i elementu kultury organizacyjnej.

    This study aims to provide insights on how and why a specialised training programme could help graduates with low performance to compete fairly in the job market. This study used an action research design, where a total of 12 graduates with low academic achievement were trained under a specialised training programme consisting of two phases within the period of ten months. Despite having low academic achievements in terms of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), the employability opportunities of those graduates were high as they were equipped with the highly sought after GST knowledge and certification and various important softskills such as time management, communication, analytical skills and leadership. This study demonstrated that engaging graduates in a specially designed program that aimed to enhance their technical knowledge and softskills coupled with some work experience is indeed a value added strategy to enhance graduates employability. This is particularly applicable to those who are low achievers as it provides them with some kind of competitive advantages. The findings suggest that despite having low CGPA, their employability opportunities, particularly in the accounting and commercial industries, were relatively high. This study provides some guidance to policymakers and educators on how universities and industries may collaborate to mitigate unemployment issues among the accounting graduates.

    The article deals with the implementation of problem-based ESP learning in the educational process of prospective educators and shows its impact on development of softskills. The purpose of the study is to make theoretical hypotheses about the effectiveness of problem-based ESP learning for prospective educators and to test their level of softskills development empirically following its implementation. The article represents an overview of the main goals, principles and stages of problem-based ESP learning. The results of the study show that problem-based ESP learning empowers prospective educators with valuable softskills (critical thinking; independent search for information; analysis of information; cooperation with groupmates; emotional intelligence; solution of complex tasks; partner relationship with tutor) and motivates students to improve their ability to achieve good results in the educational process.
