The post 2015 curriculum for general education in Vietnam is expected to focus on developing core competencies and specific competencies through subjects and educational activities. The purpose of this consultancy was to enhance capacity of the Vietnam education sector in renewing educational assessment to meet the needs arising from the new curriculum and textbooks, which will be implemented in 2015.

The purpose of the continuum is to enable school leaders to better understand, develop and extend the leadership capabilities required to lead today’s schools.
