Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavhima

The government through the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education says it is mobilising resources and putting in place infrastructure to ensure effective implementation of the new education curriculum despite it being reviewed.

The ministry said it is working towards capacitating teachers, acquiring relevant learning material and developing infrastructure as they steps up efforts in ensuring smooth implementation of the new education curriculum.

Speaking on the sidelines of a senior management advocacy training on the new curriculum attended by provincial education directors and district school inspectors among others, the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Professor Paul Mavhima said despite the curriculum undergoing review, its framework is not going to change, hence stakeholders must concentrate on delivering to ensure its success.

 Professor Mavhima said the issues raised concerning the new curriculum are being looked into and a formative evaluation is being carried out to understand the curriculum implementation.

The new education curriculum which is competency-based entered its second phase this year with the first phase said to have been successfully implemented.

Stakeholders have been raising concerns on the need to train teachers, reviewing tasks and projects undertaken by students to meet the demands of the new curriculum.
