Standard Uyghur Curriculum

 

(Standard UC)

The Tarim Network is embarking on an exciting new project titled the Standard Uyghur Curriculum. The aim of the project is to create a comprehensive and standardised Uyghur language curriculum tailored for Uyghur children in the diaspora community.

 

Uyghur language schools face challenges in finding relevant teaching materials, creating homework exercises and effectively examining children’s Uyghur proficiency. The Standard UC would create a comprehensive grade 1-10 curriculum spanning the ages 5-15. This will consist of textbooks, exercise books and examinations for each grade level, enabling Uyghur language schools to deliver a comprehensive and consistent education.

 

Standard UC is a fresh, new project that started at the beginning of 2020. It is led by a team of passionate volunteers with relevant academic and professional experience in education and linguistics. Our team has been in close contact with a consultation group of teachers and principals from Uyghur language schools across the world to help us create the structure and content of the Uyghur language curriculum. We are pleased to have reached a stage whereby the Uyghur curriculum is taking real shape, and with this we are welcoming the help of passionate and dedicated volunteers.

Please read about our open positions below before sending in an application, and send us any questions and comments you might have through our contact page.
