Diploma in Curriculum Design and Development

© UNESCO/Petterik Wiggers
Children are coming from all over Ethiopia to attend the Menelik School. Usually they cannot find an appropriate school at their home village, where there is for exemple just grade one up to four. For the continuation of the education they have to go to a city.

For the third consecutive year, the Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE), the Open University of Tanzania (OUT) and UNESCO are jointly organizing the Diploma in Curriculum Design and Development in Africa.
The Diploma begins in December 2013 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with an intensive two-week face-to-face session and will then continue over thirty weeks during the online phase throughout the academic year.

The Diploma provides training and capacity development on curricular issues with an international comparative perspective, to contribute to the achievement of equitable quality education. It is a conceptual and methodological tool for strengthening capacities for curricular analysis, review, evaluation, design and development at macro, meso and micro levels of the education system, with an emphasis on the school level.

The Diploma is intended for diverse audiences including education policymakers, planners, curriculum developers, educators, principals, supervisors, teacher trainers, quality assurance officers, researchers, international staff and other partners in education at the local and regional levels. Previous participants have reported high appreciation for the international component of the Diploma, which allowed them to exchange with counterparts from all over Africa and from other parts of the world.
