Curriculum & Assessment

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.
