EducationGhana| April 12| NaCCA Begins the Development of Standards-Based Curriculum for Secondary Education:
The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has initiated a process to develop a standards-based curriculum for secondary education.
This move is critical to completing the pre-tertiary education curriculum reforms which began in 2018.

In response to the 2018 educational reforms proposed by the Education Sector Plan 2018 2030, NaCCA developed and rolled out the Standards-Based Curriculum for KG and Primary schools and the Common Core Programme for the Junior High Schools in September 2019 and January 2021 respectively.
These curricula seek to equip all learners with core competencies, essential skills and values necessary for learners to become creative, honest and responsible citizens – nationally and globally.
The next stage is the development of the secondary education curriculum. As part of the curriculum development process, NaCCA began a series of stakeholder dialogues, in February 2022, on the development of a Standards-Based Curriculum for the Senior High Schools.
The purpose is to obtain the buy-in of all stakeholders to ensure an all-inclusive curriculum that will equip senior high school graduates with 21st-century skills to prepare them for tertiary education, employment and lifelong learning.
The stakeholders engaged so far include the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), Vice-Chancellors Ghana and PRINCOF.
The dialogue brought to bear the stakeholders’ desire to see an all-inclusive SHS curriculum that not only focuses on developing competencies and entrepreneurial skills in learners, promotes STEM education, but also a curriculum that is flexible to meet the needs, interests and talents of all learners.
Additionally, they advocated strongly for differentiated assessment at the SHS level to assess the expected national minimum competencies, skills and knowledge that students need to demonstrate as lifelong learners.
NaCCA remains committed to developing a secondary education curriculum that prioritises Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as the fundamental building
blocks of success in this era of technological advancement develop skills and competencies which SHS graduates require for early entry into the workplace or to progress to tertiary education, and that ensures teaching and learning programmes are differentiated to meet the diverse needs of learners transitioning from JHS.
