Capacity Development

The IBE works towards strengthened co–operation between and within regions and countries, creating new opportunities for sharing common concerns, ideas and practices with regard to quality curriculum innovation and reform processes.


Capacity–development activities concentrate on the strategic dimension of assistance and advice to, and training of, national teams responsible for curriculum change and development processes. For example, the IBE has contributed to many comprehensive curriculum development processes in post–conflict and conflict–affected societies, such as Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq and Kosovo.


Within the framework of its field–based activities and projects, and on the basis of accumulated experience, international and local expertise, the IBE also started producing training materials and learning tools for capacity development, targeting the specific competences that curriculum developers and decision–makers need in order to successfully cope with emerging needs and challenges.
