The Sector developed a Preparedness and Response plan which focuses on two main areas: Ensuring continuity of learning while learners are at home and preparing for resumption of and managing schooling once the COVID-19 lock down is lifted.
To facilitate continuity of learning for all our learners especially in Primary and Secondary schools, the Ministry worked with National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) to produce harmonized learning packages/materials for use in the continuity of learning while children are at home.
I would like you to know that we are aware that there are some of our learners who are not yet able to access learning by TV, radio or may not have got the self-study materials.
As a Ministry, were not able to print for 100% of the learners since we do not have a special budget for COVID 19 response but we are doing our best. These materials were meant for all learners but starting with the learners in most disadvantaged environment and I hope the Local Government distributed them as such.
These materials are not for SALE. If Local Governments, other leaders or NGOs wish to print and distribute to more learners, it should be done at their own expense and not of the learner or parent. I also wish to inform you that the print materials are available on the websites of Ministry of Education and NCDC. Families with internet access can download for their children.
