Curriculum Development

The ICEVI Executive Committee (EXCO), at its annual meeting in Pretoria in February, 2017, established a working group to address one of its priority goals for the quadrennium: Promoting access to quality education for people with visual impairment including those with blindness, low vision, deafblindness, and additional disabilities. The EXCO determined that the first step would be to develop a teacher training curriculum that would assist countries to train teachers of students with visual impairment. This activity supports the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #4 Education:

By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and Goal-4 effective learning outcomes

And specifically, the target to support SDG4,

By 2030, substantially increase the supply of qualified teachers, including through international cooperation for teacher training in developing countries, especially least developed countries and small island developing states
