The Ministry of Education has released a circular detailing the number of lessons to be taught for every subject. Via a circular titled ‘TIME ALLOCATION IN LESSONS FOR THE REVISED CURRICULUM’, the Ministry has revised the number of lessons per subject in secondary schools.
Physical Education (PE) and Life Skills have been allocated time in the new guidelines.
“One PE lesson to be allocated to life skills in form 3 and 4. In form 1 and 2, a tenth (10th) lesson should be created to be used to teach life skills.” The circular directs.
These latest guidelines are in line with the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, on the Number of lessons to be taught by teachers and administrative posts per school.
