of NaCCA

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) was established following the 2007 reforms as an Advisory Board to the Curriculum Research and Development Division (CRDD) of the Ghana Education Service.

The CRDD was established on 1st September, 1967 at Saltpond and relocated to the Ministry of Education in the 1970s.


The present Governing Council of NaCCA was inaugurated on the 26th of July, 2017. The Governing Council has a Chair, Executive Secretary and 19 other members, representing the various interest groups in the education sector.

NaCCA in collaboration with GES organises training workshops for the implementation of the New Standard-Based Curriculum

What we stand for

To raise the quality of education at the pre-tertiary level, with emphasis on science and mathematics as fundamental building blocks for accelerated national development and to instill in young Ghanaians a heightened sense of cultural identity and nationalism.

Our vision

Quality education for accelerated national development.

Core Competences

The core competencies for all subjects describe a body of skills that teachers at all levels should seek to develop in their learners. They are ways teachers and learners engage with the subject matter as they learn the subject.
The competencies presented here describe a connected body of core skills that are acquired throughout the processes of teaching and learning.

NaCCA has developed curriculum for Key Phase 1 (Foundation level comprising Kindergarten 1 & 2), Key Phase 2 (Lower Primary the level comprising B1 to B3), and Key Phase 3 (Upper Primary level of B4 to B6). Click on the button below
