The country’s National Curriculum Development Center has disclosed that talks are underway to redesign the A-level curriculum to match up to the O-level Curriculum as well as the job market.
During an interview with a local publication, Mr. Mathias Mulumba, a curriculum specialist confirmed that the research department is going to carry out research to confirm what is relevant for the current environment.
“The research department is going to do a needs assessment and this will inform us what the market wants in A-Level. We have already made a proposal to the line ministry and we are waiting for money to go and survey the country and get the views of the stakeholders,” Mr Mulumba stated.
Aside from the A-level market, universities are to be consulted since most of the students that graduate from high school right away join the University to partake in the available course.

“We will interview more than 3,000 people across the country, including university institutions on what can change,” he further stated.
Also, the A-Level curriculum change is not only because that of O-level was changed but because this curriculum has long outlived her existence since 1918 when Uganda was still being colonized hence the changes of the economy have evolved over time.
