Expertise in Curriculum Development

Relevant TVE curriculum is the real key to the process of providing knowledge and skills to learners. Expertise in curriculum development and its implementation is the most important prerequisite in providing a competitive edge to a country’s development.

Training that results from TVE curriculum, equips the vocational learner with productive skills. The process of curriculum development entails the establishment of expert groups representing:

· curriculum developer
· vocational and technical teacher
· academic/subject matter specialist
· representative of industry bodies
· education planners/representative from board
· employers, and
· other users.

Problems are faced in getting the employers/industries/representatives on expert groups as well as in finding experts in curriculum development. Sometimes the representatives from industry may not have the desired expertise.
