The Ministry of Basic Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) has for effectiveness and efficiency embarked on the revitalisation of its Curriculum and Research Unit after over a decade of dormancy.
MBSSE Communications Specialist Ibrahim Sheriff in an interview said effective teaching and learning with an underlying quality, relevance and integrity happens when the national curriculum is designed based on evidence research data, often collected and analysed by the ministry’s Curriculum and Research Unit.
“For candidates for public examination to pass WAEC conducted exams, teachers use lesson plans derived from syllabus developed using national curriculum to teach them,” Sheriff noted.
The communications specialist added that the MBSSE re-established and revamped the unit to further improve, support and coordinate research in the sector alongside partners. “Additionally with partners under the leadership of the Chief Education Officer, our delivery team has been working to develop a policy e-book, which will be officially launched virtually on 18th February 2021,” he concluded.
