In this regard, the institution is collecting feedback on the said curricular based on the following parameters; Comprehensiveness, Relevance and Quality.

Comprehensiveness: Ability of a curriculum to promote both trainee-directed and trainer-directed activities; large group, small group and individualized learning opportunities; and learning during every day routines and experiences.

Relevance: Applicability and appropriateness of a curriculum to the personal aspirations, interests, or cultural experiences of learners (personal relevance) or that are connected in some way to real-world issues, problems, and contexts (life relevance)

Quality: The curriculum should enable trainees to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills and values, and the associated capabilities and competencies, to lead meaningful and productive lives.
