An important step in the development of curricula and qualifications is the use of a technique called DACUM, which stands for “Developing A Curriculum”, and has been adopted by the Technical, Entrepreneurial, and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TEVETA) as the foundation for the development of competency-based curricula.
Skills and Technical Education Programme (STEP) has organised DACUM facilitator training for 24 participants from TEVET institutions, industry, the TEVET Authority and Ministry of Labour, Youth, Sport and Manpower Development.
The training started on August 6 and will run for three weeks.
The participants are being trained in DACUM theory and methodology, and will for the next two weeks facilitate the development of six new DACUM charts.
The new DACUM charts will cover the areas – instrumentation, computer numeric control/machining, renewable energy, TEVET instructor, construction supervisor (both wet trades and finishing).
