 New Curriculum for SHS, SHTS, and STEM Education Ready NaCCA’s Training Invitation

New Curriculum for SHS, SHTS, and STEM Education Ready NaCCA’s Training Invitation; The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has completed the process of drafting a new Curriculum for Senior High School (SHS), Senior High Technical School (SHTS), and Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Following discussions and direction from the Honorable Minister for Education, it has been agreed that, to ensure that the new curriculum is fit for purpose ahead of national roll-out in the 2024/25 academic year, GES and NaCCA should conduct a follow-up of the November 2022 curriculum trial in selected schools across the country.

GES and NaCCA have therefore been requested to work with twenty-eight (28) selected schools from thirteen (13) regions across the country from September 2023 to August 2024 on this trial. The aim of this trial is to test specific aspects of the curriculum to ensure the:

  • Appropriateness (relevance, depth, and breadth) of Year One curriculum content and supporting materials including Subject-Specific Teacher Manuals and Professional Learning Community (PLC) Handbooks.
  • Effectiveness and appropriateness of subject combinations, including the impact on learners’ workload and the way in which these combinations and options are communicated to learners, including identification of the gifted and talented and those learners who require remedial pathways.
  • Formative and summative assessment arrangements including introduction of school-level transcripts quality assured by NaCCA.
  • The availability of sufficient digital devices, digital technology integration, internet connectivity, and infrastructure to enable learners to access supporting curriculum materials.
  • Teachers’ preparedness and mastery of the integration of curriculum content, pedagogy, and assessment and readiness to use the Year One Subject-Specific Teacher Manuals.
  • Supportive monitoring and supervision from school leadership, district, region, and relevant national agencies, including the effective operation of school-based quality assurance systems.
  • The overall extent to which the new SHS, SHTS, and STEM curriculum are being implemented as planned (adherence) including learner engagement, quality of delivery, and incorporation of Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI), Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), and 21st Century Skills.
