The Higher Diploma Programme (HDP) was developed as a result of the study into the quality and effectiveness of teacher education in Ethiopia which identified the needs of teacher educators in Ethiopia. The programme continually develops in line with government policies and strategies. The programme provides teacher educators with support for their development as effective and reflective practitioners with enhanced professional status.
