About MIE                               CODL                                     Curriculum Materials


The Mauritius Institute of Education (MIE) is a Parastatal body, working under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Human Resources.

Set up in 1973 with the prime objective of modernizing the education sector and endowing it with a professional teaching workforce, the MIE provides training for the pre-primary, primary and secondary sectors of education, targeting all cadres, including teaching and management. The training provided is in line with state of the art pedagogical practices and the constant benchmarking of courses offered according to international standards ensures that the qualifications delivered by the MIE are recognised around the world.

MIE is also responsible for Research and Curriculum Development. It is the body in charge of developing the curriculum, textbook writing and evaluation.



In line with emerging trends and modes of delivery, MIE has a Centre for Open and Distance Learning (CODL) that offers all technical and pedagogical support for developing online courses to reach out to a larger number of trainees. The Educator's Licence is one of the courses offered through a mixed mode with a substantial dose of online learning. Other courses will soon be on offer through this mode.

The ODLC is at present engaged in an innovative programme of digitalizing all the primary school textbooks, developing interactive materials and in training all primary school personnel in the use of interactive boards as part of the Sankore project, a Franco-British project for Africa.

MIE offers a structured and flexible pathway for continuous professional development from induction onwards through a system of accreditation. The credit-laddering system enables professionals in education to engage in Lifelong Learning while at the same time benefit from incremental credits or enter a higher grade in the profession.

We offer both in-service and pre-service programmes at Certificate, Diploma, Degree and Post-Graduate levels. Post graduate programmes consist of the Post Graduate Certificate, Diploma, Masters' and Doctoral programmes.



Following the Franco-British summit in May 2008, the French government established the DIENA - Délégation interministérielle à l'éducation numérique en Afrique- in order to achieve Millennium Development Goals with regards to education. In this context the DIENA launched the Sankoré project to enhance educational practices and resources. The project aims at empowering teachers and other stakeholders in the education sector to create, use and share digital educational resources.
