In 2020, the Government of Uganda through the National Curriculum Development Centre launched the new competency based curriculum. The competency based curriculum replaces the old curriculum and is aimed at producing learners with the necessary competencies required in 21st century work and life.
Entrepreneurship is compulsory in S.1 and S.1 yet optional in S.3. While Entrepreneurship like all other subjects has always been learnt within the limits of the 4 walls, Senior1.org gives you a rich online experience where you can learn at your pace and convenience.
Senior1.org believes that every learner should be exposed to as many options as possible and that’s why lessons can be accessed online via YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even TikTok.
