He said the final draft was submitted to Cabinet office for further scrutiny and approval.

Dr. Ndakala said the nation will be informed as soon as Cabinet finishes looking into the document.

Among the reforms contained in the 2023 curriculum, is the structural adjustment of the education system to now be aligned with the global world.

One of the proposals contained in the curriculum is a change from “Grades” to “Forms” and having learners to write their school certificate examination at the end of form four.

And Ministry of Education, Director Human Resource, Kasonde Mwila has said Government is looking at recruiting accountants in schools.
