National Education Curriculum

From 2005 the government of Tanzania through Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) revised the national education curricula into competence-based curricula (CBC) with the aim of equipping school graduates with sufficient knowledge and life skills for them to survive academically and socially in the modern world. The revision process involved shift in paradigm from content-based to competence-based. The competence based curriculum was designed to reduce teacher-centred instruction in favour of student-centred learning characterized by active learning, solving problems, challenging existing knowledge, and participating in lively discussion, which is thought to be achieved by an inquiry-based approach.
