The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), on behalf of the Ministry of Education, has developed a Common Core Programme (CCP) Curriculum Manual for teachers to guide them in teaching and learning. The CCP curriculum is carefully designed to provide learners in Basic 7 to Basic 10 ( JHS 1 – SHS 1) with a comprehensive learning experience towards their transition to post-secondary education, or employment opportunity.
This curriculum is a follow-up to the Kindergarten to Primary Standards-Based School Curriculum implementation which commenced with the 2019/2020 academic year. Download the Common Core Programme (CCP) Curriculum Manual to serve as your reference guide.
Common Core Programme Manual covers four key training sessions.
The first session focuses on generic areas namely: the National Pre-tertiary Curriculum
Framework (NPCF), the National Pre-tertiary Learning Assessment Framework (NPLAF), the CCP concept and the Professional Learning Communities (PLC).
The second session highlights the contents of the Subjects-curricula. These include: Introduction to the CCP Subject-Curricula, Front Matter and Changes in the Curricula.
The remaining two sessions concentrate on pedagogy and assessment. There are slots for Assessment in the CCP Curriculum, Teaching and Learning Resources, Barriers to Learning, Creative Pedagogies and demonstrations.
