Program Description

The Vocational Institute English Language Curriculum Review project strengthened the ability of Tunisian vocational institutes to provide students with the practical English skills they need for employment.

World Learning SIT carried out a comprehensive English language curriculum review, engaging key stakeholders in analysis of core curriculum components: teachers and teaching, students and learning, materials (including textbooks and technology), assessment and evaluation, vocational institute English language policy, and local and regional employers. This collaborative approach resulted in the identification of core areas where curriculum could be revised, as well as practical recommendations and guidelines for meaningful curriculum change. Ultimately, it provided a strategic pathway to effective and lasting improvements in English language teaching for vocational students.

Program Goals

  • Build Tunisian vocational institutes’ ability to provide practical English language skills.
