Tripoli, 16 December 2014:
Seventeen leaders from different departments at the Libyan Ministry of Education have taken part in . . .[restrict]an eight-day capacity building workshop sponsored by UNICEF with the aim of engaging in reform of the primary education curriculum.
The workshop, held in Zarzis, Tunisia, was conducted by UK-based CfBT Education Trust, which has worked successfully to implement reform programmes for governments throughout the world. The charity has worked on projects that range from reforming national level education to improving the performance of an individual school.
The training specifically addressed the development of a national framework that would allow Libyan education specialists and stakeholders to engage in a reform process for the primary education curriculum.
During the final phase of the workshop, attendees were led through the process of putting what they had learned at the training into an action plan, which included an outline of major steps, a timeline, and a list of expectations for stakeholder involvement.
The analysis of the current basic education curriculum and the process of curriculum development currently taking place in Libya are primary areas of focus for UNICEF in the country. [/restrict]
