The Qualifications and Curriculum Department is committed to building a world-class education and training framework that meets the changing needs of individuals, business and society. We lead developments in curriculum, assessments, occupational profiles and standards, certification, facilities and qualifications.
Development of assessment processes – which is the process of gathering and discussing information from multiple and diverse sources in order to develop a deep understanding of what students know, understand, and can do with their knowledge as a result of their educational experiences. Learners will be evaluated as competent or not yet competent.
Identifying the regional accreditation and certification system, comparing education and training systems among the concurring countries. This enables harmonization and standardization of their curricular programs and qualifications.
Based on the occupational standards and profiles we develop the curriculum. A curriculum is content developed specific to the respective occupation, company profile, the region and content that is targeted towards work-and company related integrative knowledge. It is also targeted at business-process-related organizational development in the area of educational planning and practical training for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions and training companies.
We facilitate the necessary validation workshop with the goal to finalize all the key elements of the project design and ensure agreement and support for the new qualification/curriculum by key partners.
We assist in determining the National Occupational Standards (NOS) of a specific occupation. A NOS are statements of the standards of performance individuals must achieve when carrying out functions in the workplace, together with specifications of the underpinning knowledge and understanding.
Occupational Profiles (OP) refers to the transparency of the labour market, what are the specific tasks and duties of a specific trade in the world of work and linking the tasks and duties to the curriculum and training materials on how to retain and do the specific task. We have extensive experience in this area.
Instructional Materials, also known as Teaching/Learning Materials (TLM), are any collection of materials including animate and inanimate objects and human and non-human resources that a teacher may use in teaching and learning situations to help achieve desired learning objectives based on TVET instructions. We have developed these internationally based on individual countries needs.
Education and training which provides knowledge and skills for employment. It uses formal, non-formal and informal learning.
TVET is providing broad based technical knowledge and transversal skills on which different occupations can be based on and providing continuing vocational training to workers.
