The Ethics Teacher Training Course (ETTC) is designed to advance pedagogical capacity for ethics teaching and improve the quality of ethics education around the world. The Course is conducted by a team of international experts with extensive experience in ethics education.

The Course offers a unique opportunity for participants from India and from other countries in the region to enhance their teaching capacities in ethics.

As part of UNESCO’s multifaceted capacity-building strategy, the courses aim to:

1) introduce the participants to the means and resources of teaching ethics;
2) teach the participants the methodologies and methods of teaching ethics; and
3) assess and provide feedback on the participants’ demonstrations of teaching skills under the guidance of experienced teachers.

The profile of trainees will includes ethics researchers, teachers from universities, and supervisors at the Ministry of Education.

A successful candidate for the Course will have a Master’s or higher degree (in areas such as law, medicine, health sciences, philosophy, ethics, or social sciences), experience in, or future plans of teaching ethics, and a good command of English Language.

The Course is also open to other Ethics Professionals and Practitioners.
