Ethiopian TVET System


Curriculum Level II

Preface
The reformed TVET-System is an outcome-based system. It utilizes the needs of the
labor market and occupational requirements from the world of work as the
benchmark and standard for TVET delivery. The requirements from the world of work
are analyzed and documented taking into account international benchmarking as
Occupational Standards (OS).
In the reformed TVET-System, Curricula and Curriculum Development play an
important role with regard to quality driven TVET-Delivery. Curricula help to facilitate
the learning process in a way, that trainees acquire the set of occupational
competences (skills, knowledge and attitude) required at the working place and
defined in the Occupational Standards (OS). Responsibility for Curriculum
Development will be given to the Regional TVET-Authorities and TVET-Providers.
This curriculum has been developed by a group of experts from different Regional
TVET-Authorities based on the Occupational Standard for Surveying. It has the
character of a model curriculum and is an example on how to transform the
occupational requirements as defined in the respective Occupational Standard into
an adequate curriculum.
The curriculum development process has been actively supported and facilitated by
the Ministry of Education in line with one of its mandates to provide technical
support to the regions and by the TVET-Reform Component of the Engineering
Capacity Building Program.

TVET-Program Description
The Program is designed to develop the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude of
the learners to the standard required by the OS. The contents of this program are in
line with the Occupational Standard (OS). Learners who successfully completed the
Program will be qualified to work as a mason with competencies elaborated in the
respective OS. Graduates of the Program will have the required qualification to work
in the Construction Industry sector in the field of masonry.
The prime objective of this training program is to equip the learners with the
identified competences specified in the OS. Graduates are therefore expected to set
out masonry structures; produce bricks and blocks, erect brick and block structures
,lay multi-thickness walls and piers; repair and rectify masonry structure, use brick
laying and block laying tools and equipment , lay natural stone, and construct masonry
steps and stairs accordance with the performance criteria described in the OS.

Mode of Delivery
This TVET-Program is characterized as a formal Program on middle level technical
skills. The mode of delivery is co-operative training. The TVET-institution and
identified companies have forged an agreement to co-operate with regard to
implementation of this program. The time spent by the trainees in the industry will
give them enough exposure to the actual world of work and enable them to get
hands-on experience.
The co-operative approach will be supported with lecture-discussion, simulation and
actual practice. These modalities will be utilized before the trainees are exposed to
the industry environment.

1.10 Institutional Assessment


Two types of evaluation will be used in determining the extent to which learning
outcomes are achieved. The specific learning outcomes are stated in the modules. In
assessing them, verifiable and observable indicators and standards shall be used.
The formative assessment is incorporated in the learning modules and form part of
the learning process. Formative evaluation provides the trainee with feedback
regarding success or failure in attaining learning outcomes. It identifies the specific
learning errors that need to be corrected, and provides reinforcement for successful
performance as well. For the teacher, formative evaluation provides information for
making instruction and remedial work more effective.
Summative Evaluation the other form of evaluation is given when all the modules in
the unit of competence have been accomplished. It determines the extent to which
competence have been achieved. And, the result of this assessment decision shall
be expressed in the term competent or not yet competent.
Techniques or tools for obtaining information about trainees achievement include oral
or written test, demonstration and on-site observation.
1.11 TVET Trainers Profile
