NUEPA offers a widely acclaimed International Diploma
in Educational Planning and Administration (IDEPA) for the senior educational policy makers, planners
and administrators annually to the international participants. IDEPA was started in the year 1985 as
a sequel to the recommendations of the sub-regional meeting for Asian countries organised by the Indian
National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO in 1983. The National University has successfully
completed as many as twenty-eight such IDEPA Programmes, one in each successive year. Over the years,
participation in terms of number of countries and participants has increased considerably.
Until now, a total of 816 trainees from 90 countries of Africa, Eastern Europe, Central Asia,
West Asia, South and South-East Asia, Latin America and Pacific regions have participated in the
Aim:IDEPA endeavours to promote the spirit of regional cooperation, international understanding
and goodwill through exchange of experiences on subject matter and issues important to the development
of human resource. With this mission, it aims at augmenting capabilities and competencies in educational
planning and administration.
Objectives:The International Diploma Programme has gained its uniqueness over the
years by continual updating of its objectives and course structures in order to keep pace with the changing
scenario. The Programme in general strives to understand educational developments in the developing countries
with particular reference to policy, planning and management, especially on quality and equity issues relating
to school, vocational and higher education.
IDEPA encompasses the principles, concepts and techniques of educational
planning, supervision, administration, management and leadership for fulfilling the national goals and
meeting local requirements of various countries. In this regard, it tries to develop skills of analysis,
statistical interpretation, forecasting, project preparation for macro and micro level educational planning,
on the one hand, and effective managerial leadership skills in educational administration, project management
and programme implementation on the other.
