In July 1970, the University College of Dar es Salaam was elevated to the status of an autonomous University, the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM). The Institute of Education remained a constituent unit of the newly formed University. In 1975, IE was elevated to a corporate body by Act of Parliament No. 13 of 1975 which placed it under the Ministry of Education and Culture, thus making it independent of UDSM.

In 1987, through Miscellaneous Amendment Act No. 4, the name of the Institute of Education was changed to the Institute of Curriculum Development (ICD). This was due to its strong involvement in the process of designing and developing curricula for various educational levels in the country. However, the objectives and functions of the Institute remained the same.

The Institute’s name was again changed to Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) through Act of Parliament No. 5 of 1993 because it was generally felt that the name “Institute of Curriculum Development” did not reflect the functions of the Institute properly, for curriculum development was only one among several functions of the Institute.

In July 2009,TIE was transformed from an ordinary public institution to a Non-University institution of higher learning education whose training functions is regulated by the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE). The transformation allows the institute to train curriculum specialists and award certificate, diploma and postgraduate diploma in curriculum design and development, a function enshrined in the Act No. 13 of 1975.
