UNESCO’s International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) is now accepting applications its Advance Training Programme (ATP) in Educational Planning and Management. The 2013/2014 ATP training will be held from 21 October 2013 to 27 June 2014. Application deadline is 31 May 2013.
The ATP is an intensive 8-month programme leading to a professional certificate at the Diploma or Master’s level. Delivered in English and French in a blended mode, (at a distance and in Paris), the ATP contributes to the creation of sustainable institutional and organizational capacity at the service of education progress. The programme covers skills and practices supporting educational development and reform in participants’ home countries, with an emphasis on relevance and applicability.
Applications are invited from individuals working in government institutions such as Ministers of Education, Finance, Planning, and Civil Service Commissions; from international and national NGOs; from national research and training institutions; and from universities in UNESCO Member States. Persons from international cooperation agencies wishing to upgrade their skills or prepare for a professional reorientation are also welcome to apply.
Candidates should have a minimum of 3 years of work experience at the central or regional administrative level or in research and training related to education planning and management. Female candidates will be given priority access to the ATP in the case of equal admission qualifications.
The IIEP offers two alternatives leading to diplomas or certificates as follows:
The Education Sector Planning Programmes (ESP): the ESP combines an 8-week online learning phase with a 12-week residential training phase, providing participants with the fundamentals of educational planning
The Specialized Course Programme (SCP): The SCP combines 8 courses of two weeks each, grouped in two parallel streams: 1. Education Planning, Analysis, focusing on the analysis of information for decision-making, and 2. ‘Planning and Management’, on operational planning and implementation.
