Summary of NECTA’s History
After Tanzania Mainland had pulled out of the East African Examinations Council, in 1971 and before NECTA was established by Law, in 1973, the Curriculum and Examinations Section of the Ministry of Education was responsible for all examinations. With the establishment of NECTA, the Examinations became its responsibility in accordance with the law. The Curriculum continued to be under the Ministry of Education and the University College, Dar es Salaam until when it was taken over by the newly established, autonomous Institute of Curriculum Development (ICD) in 1975, which in 1993 was renamed as the Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE).

Between 1972 and 1976 the first staff of NECTA were recruited, among them was Mr. P. P Gandye who was recruited in 1972 and later on in 1994 was appointed as Executive Secretary. The other staff members continued to be recruited and especially so when NECTA’s premises moved from the Ministry of Education Headquarters to the present premises at Kijitonyama near Mwenge. Presently the number of NECTA’s staff is more than 250.

The Establishment of NECTA The National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) is Government Institution which was established by the Parliamentary Act No. 21 of 1973. NECTA is responsible for the administration of all National Examinations in Tanzania.

The decision to establish NECTA was a follow-up of an earlier move, in April 1971, when Tanzania Mainland pulled out of the East African Examinations Council (EAEC) to conduct her own examinations. Zanzibar pulled out of EAEC in 1970. Before the pull out, between 1968 and 1971, Tanzania sat for foreign Secondary School Examinations conducted jointly by the East African Syndicate, which before then were conducted by the Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate alone. The Examinations conducted by the Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate then were the School Certificate and the Higher School Certificate Examinations. The School Certificate Examinations was taken by the African Students for the first time in 1947 and that of the Higher School Certificate in 1960.

UN MGCY Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) Youth Forum 2019 – Quito, Ecuador (Limited Funding Available)

Deadline: October 10, 2019

The United Major Group for Children and Youth (UN MGCY) invites applications for participation in the Global Forum on Migration and Development – GFMD Youth Forum 2019. This event is a side event of the 2019 Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) Summit. The annual GFMD summit is a state-led, informal and non-binding process which helps shape the global debate on migration and development.
The GFMD Youth Forum will be held in Quito right before the GFMD Summit, from 17-18 November.

About the Forum
We need youth to have access to a space where they are able to discuss youth-specific migration challenges, needs and opportunities, in order to consolidate solid policy priorities around the key issues of migration and development.

It is for this reason that the UN MGCY is organizing the Youth Forum. The Youth Forum’s programme will discuss key issues identified in last year’s summit, including education and decent jobs for youth migrants, and on the themes related to the GFMD agenda, including “facilitating the economic and social inclusion of migrants”, “providing regular pathways from crisis to safety”, and “shaping public narratives on migrants and migration”. The Youth Forum programme is built to be highly pertinent to these issues discussed during the GFMD Summit, as this allows the outcomes of the Youth Forum to feed into the rountables of the GFMD.

During the Youth Forum, they will add focuses on youth priority themes, such as Education and Child Detention, and will endeavour to discuss the other topics with a youth lens. They will also focus on identifying already existing youth-led and/or youth-focused actions on these issues and present ways to scale or replicate them in partnership with other stakeholders. In each session, they will also make sure they consider specific vulnerabilities and opportunities related to gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ+, and disability.

Funding

UN MGCY is working hard to raise funds and might be able to offer scholarships based on merit and need – with special attention to under-represented countries and populations, especially from Low Income Countries. However, they will have limited funding available and they strongly encourage prospective participants to proactively ask their institutions, universities, governments, international youth groups or development organizations for financial support to cover their airfare and accommodation in Quito, Ecuador.

Eligibility

  • Open to representatives of youth-led and/or serving civil society organizations
  • Applicants must be under the age of 31
  • Applicants are meaningfully engaged in relevant work in their communities

The GFMD Youth Forum will count on the presence of 50 representatives from youth-led and/or serving civil society organizations (under the age of 31) who are meaningfully engaged in relevant work in their communities. They aim for a balanced representation, including aspects of regional, social, religious, age and gender representation.

Taking into account that the Forum is taking place in Ecuador, they aim for 25 delegates representing Latin American countries (of which at least 10 representing Ecuador).

Application
