THE COMMON CORE PROGRAM.
The New Common Core Program (CCP) is a continuation of the KG to Basic 6 curriculum introduced which was introduced in 1st September 2019. As a matter of fact, the CCP curriculum is a carefully designed programme containing nine subjects for learners in Basic 7 to Basic 10 (JHS 1 – SHS 1) as part of learning experiences to prepare them for their future carriers as their world of work.
Some of the subjects that make up the Common Core Programme include Religious and Moral Education, Creative Arts and Design, Social Studies, Sciences, Computing, Career Technology, Physical and Health Education.
All What you need to know About The Common Core Programme (CCP).
1. The Common Core Programme (CCP) is a 4-yr programme comprising 9 subjects which are; Maths, Languages, Sciences, Social Studies, Computing, RME, Physical and Health Education, Career Technology, Creative Arts, and Design.
2. It is a standard-based curriculum that seeks to develop the six key competencies of learning like critical thinking and problem solving in learners.
4. Before SHS 2, students take Common Core Exams to guide them in choosing a combination of courses for High School Diploma Programmes (HSDP) or Career-related programmes (CRP).
5. From SHS 2 – 3, students decide either to pursue a career-related programme or an academic one, or both.
6. Project work, community service and engagements with the working institutions will be integrated as part of a comprehensive learner assessment that emphasizes activity based.
The Curriculum is designed around building character and nurturing values, in addition to ensuring a seamless progression for all learners from JHS to SHS and creating clear pathways for academic and career-related programmes from Basic 11 (SHS 2) to Basic 12 (SHS 3).
THE FATE OF THE CURRENT JHS ONE (B 7).
The CCP was supposed to take off in September, 2020 but could not take place because the JHS teachers did not have their training on it.
The CCP workshop for the JHS teachers failed to take place due to reasons beyond the control of GES and NACCA. Since teachers of the JHS students could not have their training on the CCP workshop, the current JHS one students who are the pioneers of the Standard Based Curriculum, are currently not undergoing the CCP curriculum teaching.
The fact is that this JHS 1 students are learning the old curriculum. Meanwhile, they were learning the standard Based Curriculum when they were in Basic 6.
The effect is that these JHS one students will have to be made to write the BECE examination when they get to JHS 3 because they cannot be made to repeat a year. Besides, repeating a year means that their juniors in Basic 6 will catch up with them and that is if there are facilities. From all indications, this can't be possible.
So it is obviouse that the current JHS 1 students will have to go by the old curriculum with the BECE.
