National Pre-tertiary Education Curriculum Framework – DOWNLOAD

The National Pre-tertiary Education Curriculum Framework is the policy guideline against which the school curriculum will be reviewed and revised.

The school curriculum is then positioned to develop graduates who are problem solvers, have the ability to think creatively, and have both the confidence and competence to participate fully in the Ghanaian society as responsible local and global citizens.

The curriculum framework for pre-tertiary education provision in Ghana and the curriculum that it has guided to be developed, are critical in defining the future prospects of Ghana’s young people.

Through the education that Ghana’s young people receive, the Ministry of Education expects that Ghana’s young people will be nurtured into honest, creative and
responsible citizens, making a meaningful contribution to society.

Learners from the pre-tertiary education system are expected to be fluent in Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic and
cReativity, in addition to being developed into lifelong learners, who are digitally fluent. The learning outcomes of learners in schools across Ghana must be improved because appropriate policy measures, including the use of standards-based curriculum in the schools, have been implemented and they are working.


The ambitions and aspirations of Ghana for the national curriculum include:

  1. a particular focus on the 4Rs: Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic, and cReativity as a catalyst for achieving rapid sustainable developmental changes.
  2. a focus on the essential knowledge, skills, and competencies that Ghana’s young people need to become educated citizens.
  3. a focus on mathematics and science as the fundamental building blocks for success in the era of technological advancement and
  4. ensuring that basic school lays the solid foundation necessary for tertiary education as well as preparations for early entry into the workplace.
