The Ghana Education Service and National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, has introduced a new curriculum to equip learners with essential skills and foster critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, Mr. John Kwadwo Amisa, the Techiman South Education Director has revealed.

According  to him, the new Standards-Based Curriculum (SBC), aims to provide learners with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the challenges of the modern world.

He said the SBC, focuses on developing students’ analytical and creative thinking abilities, enabling them to approach problems from different perspectives and find innovative solutions.

“The curriculum focuses on training the learners to become critical thinkers, and problem solvers, we want these children to become innovators and creators, we don’t want to go back to the old system while these children were meant to recite knowledge that has already impacted them.” He said.

The curriculum includes a variety of subjects, including mathematics, science, and language arts, as well as social studies and practical skills. It emphasizes hands-on learning experiences and encourages students to participate in group projects and discussions to develop their critical thinking and communication skills.

Mr. John Kwadwo Amisa, disclosed that the new curriculum will have a positive impact on students’ academic performance and overall development.

“We want them to have the knowledge, and be able to project what best can be done. We are seeking knowledge generation, we are seeking for new technology, new lifestyle, improvement in our life, and things that these children can innovate so that lives can be better.

“This is the focus of the new curriculum, it is not about just transmitting knowledge to them, it is about giving them the fundamentals and asking the children to build upon the fundamentals so that we can use the new creations to build our country.” He explained.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) announced that a new standard-based curriculum is expected to be implemented in the next academic year to enhance learning in the country.
