Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) is a public institution under the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. The Institute is charged with the responsibility of interpreting government policies on education to befitting curriculum programmes and instructional materials in order to facilitate provision of quality education at pre- primary, primary, secondary and teacher education levels.
Originally, the Institute under the name of Institute of Education (IE), was established by Act No. 13 of 1963 as a constituent unit of the then University College of Dar es Salaam.
Its major function was to harmonize the teacher training function of the University College of Dar es Salaam with the then Ministry of Education in order to improve the teaching and learning process in schools and teacher education colleges.
In July 1970, the University College of Dar es Salaam was elevated to the status of an autonomous University, the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM). The Institute of Education remained a constituent unit of the newly formed University.
In 1975, IE was elevated to a corporate body by Act of Parliament No. 13 of 1975 which placed it under the Ministry of Education and Culture, thus making it independent of UDSM.
In 1987, through Miscellaneous Amendment Act No. 4, the name of the Institute of Education was changed to the Institute of Curriculum Development (ICD). This was due to its strong involvement in the process of designing and developing curricula for various educational levels in the country. However, the objectives and functions of the Institute remained the same.
The Institute’s name was again changed to Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) through Act of Parliament No. 5 of 1993 because it was generally felt that the name “Institute of Curriculum Development” did not reflect the functions of the Institute properly, for curriculum development was only one among several functions of the Institute.
In July 2009,TIE was transformed from an ordinary public institution to a Non-University institution of higher learning education whose training functions is regulated by the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE).
The transformation allows the institute to train curriculum specialists and award certificate, diploma and postgraduate diploma in curriculum design and development, a function enshrined in the Act No. 13 of 1975.
The main functions of the Institute are:
i. Design and develop curricula for Pre- primary, Primary, Secondary, and Teacher Education levels.
ii. Carry out in-service and Pre-service teachers for efficient and effective implementation of curricula.
iii. Provide and oversee education quality assurance with regard to teaching methods, objectives and standard of teaching-learning materials.
iv. Provide technical advice to the Government through the Ministry responsible for education and to other stakeholders with the ultimate objective of providing quality education at all levels.
To become the centre of excellence in curriculum design, development, and implementation with highly competent, motivated and committed professionals
