Starting 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. You can read more on why we need this curriculum and how it is delivered here.
Kiswahili is one of the compulsory subjects learners will do in S.1 and S.2. While Kiswahili like all other subjects has always been learnt within the limits of the 4 walls in the previous curriculum, Senior1.org gives you a rich online experience where you can learn at your pace and convenience if you register here.
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. In the video below, Teacher Kato Herbert rounds up what is contained in the senior 1 Kiswahili syllabus, how lessons will be handled, what is expected of learners and how assessment will be done.
