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 also read Mr. Ogwal Isaac’s article, A Competency Based Curriculum: Why we need it and how to implement it.
Christian religious Education (CRE) is one of the compulsory subjects in Senior one and Senior 2. While CRE 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 if you register here.
Senior1.org believes that every learner should be exposed to as many options as possible and that’s why our lessons can be accessed online via YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even TikTok. In the video below, Mr. Luwagga Simon rounds up what is contained in the senior one CRE syllabus, how lessons will be handled, what is expected of learners and how assessment will be done.
