The Curriculum and Assessment Section is responsible for the management of the national curriculum. This entails the supervision of every facet of teaching/learning in a variety of subject areas at seven classes in the primary, and six levels in the secondary schools. Officers in the department visit classrooms where they assist teachers with the development of instructional and lesson plans, observe classroom practices, demonstrate relevant methodology, hold on site workshops and advise on curriculum materials. They also check to ensure that there is adherence to the national syllabuses and that the attainment targets and methods of assessment which are a major consideration in the design of any teaching unit. Ultimately, critical to the monitoring of programmes in schools, is the evaluation and revision of curricula in the interest of ensuring relevant content and pedagogically sound practices in our educational institutions at all times.
