New Curriculum For JHS To Begin Next Academic Year

The much talked anticipated Common Core Programme for junior high schools will soon be implemented by teachers, as preparations are underway and almost near completion. 

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has revealed the Common Core Programme to be used by junior high schools nationwide will be implemented in the next academic year (i.e., 202).

This follows the completion of the second phase of the development of the Pre-tertiary Common Core Programme by the Ministry of Education and NaCCA. The CCP documents have, however, been submitted to the Ghana Education Service for use in 2022. 

Despite this, NaCCA has also invited publishers and content creators across the board to submit their drafted textbooks based on the Common Core Programme for scrutiny. However, the assessment process comes with a price depending on the level of the book presented to NaCCA. 


I hope the Common Core Programme will be implemented with its accompanying resources like teaching and learning resources, textbooks and teacher guides.

Moreover, I think the GES should also let teachers at the JHS level know when the workshop will finally be organized after postponing or countless times. 

Teachers also want to know when the government will supply textbooks to the primary level of education because it has been years of introducing the Standard Based Curriculum for primary and kindergarten learners.
