Co-organized by UNESCO, UNICEF, and GPE and hosted on the IIEP-UNESCO virtual campus, the new massive open online course (MOOC) aims to demonstrate how to improve early childhood education (ECE) by ensuring that it is a core component of education sector planning.

The course will also teach participants how to analyze the current state of ECE in their country, how to develop policies and programs, how to cost and finance them, as well as how to support their implementation with support of an education plan. 

The MOOC is offered in English and will run over five weeks from October 28 to November 29, 2019, preceded by an introduction starting on October 23.

This a program will definitely give us a leverage to support our future generations success. Thanks very much, TOS

This is coming at a time for my back to school project in Northern Nigeria. Thanks to your team.

This MOOC looks extremely interesting and I would like to do it, but need to know a bit more first. Is there an information document available that outlines the modules, and more importantly, states more or less how many hours per day will be necessary for study during the 5 weeks of the course?

Looking forward to hearing from you, many thanks!

Dear Zanri, 
Thank you for your interest in the course! Tomorrow morning we are holding a 1hr webinar on the MOOC and will go over these exact questions: https://www.globalpartnership.org/event/webinar-new-mooc-mainstreaming-early-childhood-education-education-sector-planning
My suggestion would be to register for the course as you'll then have access to all course materials and can choose which learning persona (or level of engagement) works best for you. 

This comes at the right time in South Africa we at the pick in ECD
