COMPETENCY BASED CURRICULUM

This guide book outlines the same process for development of competency based curriculum for Teacher Education as is the recognised approach being followed by member countries in the Asia-Pacific region of UNESCO for TVE Curriculum development.

Competency based curriculum describes an approach that focuses on the development of competency in the learner as the outcome/objective of the education.

Competency based curriculum has a primary focus on what the learner can actually do and on the outcomes from the education. It details the abilities in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains as they relate to a specified level of competency.
