Curriculum planning & development
CP&D Established In 2005 Heads Of Department Over the Years
Curriculum is the guide that delineates the learning path of a student and determines the process of this learning. During policy formulation two aspects of curriculum are addressed, the process of curriculum development and the content implementation of the curriculum. Curriculum focuses on the following main areas:
Student Learning Outcomes
Teaching Strategies & Evaluation
Assessment For Learning
Resources & References
While preparing the curriculum, national and international curricula are studied, researched and then curriculum is formulated which adheres to international norms of education and reflects our values too. The aim of our curriculum is to develop students intellectually and academically to meet the challenges at home and aboard. A solid bedrock of citizenship is placed while they are being trained to respect beliefs, faiths and customs, different to their own.
