In this pervasive global economy educational providers, industry bodies and government agencies have recognised the level of work-ready skills, knowledge and competence of graduating learners is the key to remaining globally competitive. To maintain, and ultimately improve, the work-readiness of their learner’s educational institutions are demonstrating a commitment to educational renewal.
As part of a national drive within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to improve educational outcomes, Jubail Technical Institute (JTI), in con-junction with New Zealand Institutes of Technology, undertook a comprehensive review of the achievement based curriculum currently delivered and their traditional teaching practices. During this review JTI recognised their approach to educational provision should be re-focused on, and be defined by, the successful demonstrations of work-ready skills knowledge and competence of each learner. Recognising New Zealand Institutes of Technology had successfully adopted learner centric competency-based educational practices they approached Wintec to help in the establishment of a Quality and Educational Development Centre at JTI to lead the adoption of competency-based educational practices.
This presentation will explain the four-step process used in the creation and establishment of this centre;
• Step 1: The conceptualisation, promotion and establishment of the JTI Education and Training Excellence Centre.
• Step 2: The provision of training and certification in competency-based curriculum development and learner centric teaching practices for foundation staff of the centre.
• Step 3: The development of training modules and manuals in competency-based instruction for all JTI instructors.
• Step 4: The development of training modules and manuals to aid in the conversion of all JTI curricula to competency-based formats.
