Curriculum for Primary Education Level in Tanzania
Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) is a Parastatal Organization under the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the quality of education is set and maintained to the higher standards at Pre-primary, Primary, Secondary School and Teacher Education levels.
The Institute’s inception came about 43 years ago through enactment of Act No. 13 of 1963 whereby, Institute of Education (IE) under the then University College of Dar es Salaam, a constituent college of the University of East Africa was established. This institution was established with expressed purpose of relating the University College’s education programme to Government Policy on Education, the Ministry of Education directives on education and the curriculum at Teacher Training Colleges.
In July 1970 when University of Dar es Salaam became autonomous university and the Institute remained constituent of the University. The Institute’s functions were redefined to focus more sharply on providing service to the national education by associating the education programmes of University of Dar es Salaam with the curricula at schools, teacher training colleges and then Ministry of Education.
In 1975 the Institute of Education was legally disengaged from University of Dar es Salaam through Act. No. 13 of 1975. Through this Act the Institute became a corporate body.
