Update on Curriculum Reform

Minister of State in the Ministry of Education Dr Louis Zabaneh led a delegation of education stakeholders who visited primary school teachers and principals of the Corozal District to continue consultations on the new national competency-based curriculum.  The teachers and principals expressed their concerns and ideas on the pilot implementation of the new curriculum during this transition year. They were introduced to the work of the newly established pro-tempore Teacher Support Team, made up of exemplary teachers whose main responsibilities will be to assist with clarifying questions and responding to concerns in a timely manner. The ministry’s virtual platform will also be used to create a Community of Practice for teachers, principals, and the Support Team to discuss and share ideas on the implementation and improvement of the competency-based curriculum.  The delegation will continue its countrywide tour and a similar effort will commence in March of this year for high schools. The new competency-based curriculum addresses the need to develop skills and attitudes, in addition to knowledge, in children to prepare them for a successful life of contribution to the sustainable human development of Belize.
