Primary schools and teachers not ready for new general education cirriculum
The new general education programme issued by the Ministry of Education and Training at the end of last year will be applied for the 2020-21 school year. But preparations for the major transition are lagging behind schedule and with teachers unprepared for the new curriculum, it may already be too late to ensure a smooth transition.
The new curriculum, which focuses on developing student competence through activities, is divided into two phases. The first phase is general education and stretches from grade one to grade nine. Phase two is vocational training from grade 10 to grade 12.
