Who we are

NaCCA is an entity mandated by the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020 (Act 1023) to develop national curriculum and assessment standards for pre-tertiary education institutions other than technical and vocational education and training institutions.

How we started

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) was first established following the 2007 education reforms as an Advisory Board to the Curriculum Research and Development Division (CRDD) of the Ghana Education Service. The goal was to help manage and implement the Curriculum Policy of the Ministry of Education (MOE) towards the attainment of educational objectives and development goals of the nation.

As a result, CRDD was reconstituted as a statutory Council by the Education Act of 2008, Act 778. Currently, the legislative instrument which the council operates under is the Education Bodies Regulatory Act of 2020, Act 1023- with the mandate to ensure curriculum and assessment standards at the pre-tertiary level excluding technical and vocational education.
