8.3.1 Institutional overview
The ministries responsible for education and higher education are mandated for materials of arts and culture education at the levels of basic, secondary and higher education. The Ministry of Culture supervises a system of arts education that is not considered as part of the official curriculum. The issued certificates of this system only permit access to professional artistic license through exams. During the reforms and transformations of the Tunisian educational system from elementary till university education, the Ministry of Culture contributed with proposals in its areas of intervention.
