Session 2015: 13 April - 5 June

The IIEP Specialized Courses Programme (SCP) responds to the needs of professionals interested in intensive, short-term, specialized training in specific areas of educational planning and management. The SCP targets educational planning and management professionals working in ministries of education and other government and non-government organizations. It also caters to professionals involved in the design, implementation and management of education programmes and projects in bilateral and multilateral agencies as well as to specialists in education planning and management from training institutions and universities.

Designed to strengthen the participants’ knowledge in key areas of educational planning and management and their skills in related tools and techniques, seven specialization courses are being offered through the SCP this year. The programme is organized and delivered in two parallel specialization streams. Participants who complete one whole stream can thus acquire an integrated knowledge either in educational planning or in the management of education systems, programmes or projects.
