Curriculum Advisory Groups

In many countries, a network of industry training boards (or similar organisations) set minimum standards and criteria for education and training programmes in their areas, and they also provide recognition through accreditation to the providers whose programmes meet these. In the absence of such industry training organisations in Bahrain, Bahrain Polytechnic has established a separate Curriculum Advisory Groups (CAC) for each programme. The networking of CACs with faculty staff members ensures an effective interface with the Public & Private sector and future employers of the graduates. It is vital to have input from CAC industry members to the ongoing development of the curriculum, ensuring that graduates have the appropriate knowledge and skills to meet the needs of employers. The role of the CAC is to advise, assist, support, and advocate the technical/occupational curriculum.  Advisory committees can provide input into specifications for a curriculum and help to ensure the quality of programme graduates.  They can offer suggestions for improvements that will help the programme grow and expand.

Bahrain Polytechnic will continue to establish strong relationships with key stakeholders to ensure that the programmes are designed to be relevant to the needs of the workplace, responsive to changes in technology and reflective of the realities of the labour market, inclusive of its rapidly changing technological needs.

At Bahrain Polytechnic, the Curriculum Advisory Groups (CAG) assist with:

  • Curriculum development and reviews
  • Ensuring the provision of authentic learning experiences that are relevant
  • Work placements
  •  Practical experience that prepares students to become work ready graduates
