1. Team leader of the Zimbabwe Curriculum Review

On 28 November 2014 I was appointed as one of the six team leaders by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to initiate a consultative curriculum review process that involved all stakeholders including learners, parents, teachers, leaders in industry and commerce, farmers, church organisations, civic society, institutions of higher learning and Government ministries and departments. The result of the consultative process was the production of a Narrative Report on Curriculum Review by the six team leaders. The team leaders were also tasked to craft the Zimbabwe Curriculum Blueprint. The Blueprint was informed by the findings and recommendations of the Narrative Report on the Curriculum; the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Education and Training (CIET) report published in 1999; the 2013 Zimbabwean Constitution, the nation’s economic blueprint, the ZIM ASSET as well as the Education Act among others. This framework is also the main reference document informing the development of syllabuses, revision of syllabuses, development and use of learning resources and the creation of guidelines for in-service teacher training and support. The Curriculum Framework sets out what learners are expected to know, understand, value and be able to do as a result of their learning experiences in schools and non-formal education settings from Early Childhood Development (ECD) to secondary level. Its fundamental purpose is to provide a structure around which schools can build
educational programmes that ensure learners achieve desired outcomes. This framework identifies learning areas for all learners. It is intended to guide schools and teachers, stakeholders and parents over the curriculum process in a rapidly changing environment for the next seven years.
