Objectives of Customised Courses

The objective of the Customised Course is to respond to the special needs of Member Countries and other agencies which are not adequately addressed in the regular programme of training courses. These special tailor-made programmes of varying durations may be held in-country or at SEAMEO RECSAM.

Application for Customised Courses are available throughout the year. Any organisation from SEAMEO Member countries may write in to us for details of the course. However, one should follow closely the following general guidelines.

 The general guidelines for conducting customised courses are as follows:

  • The Centre may develop other training courses in Science, Mathematics and Technology Education as desired by any country/institution.
  • The requested courses may be conducted at RECSAM or in the country requesting the programme.
  • English will be used as the medium of instruction in all courses. Participants must therefore have a working knowledge of the language to fully benefit from the courses.
  • For each customised course, SEAMEO RECSAM will endeavour to secure the services of prominent consultants in the areas concerned to further enhance the quality of course inputs.
  • The country requesting for the customised course(s) should:
    • initiate negotiations with RECSAM, at least three (3) months before the programme starts to allow time for consultation and preparation; and
    • provide the necessary information regarding the:
      • number of participants
      • provision of training venue, equipment, facilities and supplies
      • administrative services

The following list of customised courses is a sampling of the structure of course titles that the Centre is prepared to conduct. However, if clients have other options in the related areas, they are invited to approach the Centre with details of their requests. These courses will be promoted widely via the home-page, brochures and other promotional materials displayed at RECSAM’s regional and international events, both at home and abroad.
