Circular on Lower secondary & Abridged Curriculum

The Ministry of Education and Sports through the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) rolled out a Competency Based Curriculum in 2020, which is in its third year of implementation. On the other hand, the Abridged curriculum was implemented in 2022, P2-P7 and S2, S3, S4 and S6.


The ever-changing education environment and the labour market demands of the 21st century arising from ICT revolution, emerging of pandemics, climate change, gender and innovations among others, have caused inefficiencies in the curriculum process. This calls for educationists to rethink how the curriculum should be designed and implemented to ensure the acquisition of the desired knowledge, skills, values and attitudes for social economic transformation. However, there is lack of a coherent framework on curriculum design, development, implementation and assessment resulting from changes within and out of the education environment. This is important for educationists across the globe to advance strategies for holistic learning to ensure the achievement of the desired competencies.
