HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
The institute is a government owned institution under the ministry of community development, gender and children. Construction of the institute buildings started in 1964 with a support from Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA). It started in 1966 by offering short courses in community development. The Institute was officially inaugurated on 21st November, 1968by the late Vice President Honorable Rashid MfaumeKawawa.

Initially, the institute was designed to conduct short courses for women who were Standard Seven leavers and mainly those from workplaces. These short courses on childcare, maternity health, home economics including handcrafts and textiles were offered since its establishment up to 1980. The Institute has continued to grow and expand in terms of diversified academic courses and student enrollments. From 1981 the institute started to offer long term courses (certificate in community development) which took two years. The certificate course in community development has been offered by this institute for 34 years now.

In the year 2007 the parent ministry conducted stakeholder’s workshop to discuss issues concerning review of certificate programme and the possibility of introducing ordinary diploma in community development. One of the strongest recommendations of that meeting was the introduction of intermediate cadre of community development with comparatively advanced skill vis-a-vis the certificate holders. This recommendation was deemed crucial at this stage due to globalization of knowledge and technology which in turn has affected or raised new expectations and demands of employers and consumers of community development professionals.

As a result of the syllabus review, the certificate programme in community development was improved by dropping some outdated subjects offered and introducing new modules. Under syllabus review many changes were incorporated as major prerequisite for National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) requirements which is the Accreditation Regulatory Authority for institute accreditation. These changes included, shifting from term system to semester system, certificate to be offered in National Technical Award (NTA) levels i.e. level 4(Basic Technician Certificate in Community Development) and level 5 (Technician Certificate in Community Development), each level having two semesters and Diploma in Community Development (NTA Level 6) also two semesters

From the year 2013/14 the Institute begun to use a new syllabus which was reviewed and approved by NACTE whereby students pursue their courses in Basic Technician Certificate in Community Development Course (NTA Level 4), Technician Certificate in Community Development Course (NTA Level 5), and Diploma in Community Development (NTA Level 6) which at Buhare CDTI started to be offered in September 2008 after considering the demands and recommendations from stakeholders.
