The education system in Malta is currently experiencing a transformation in the way the teaching process is carried out across all levels. The system started to shift from one based on curriculum to one based on Learning Outcomes.
Education Minister Clifton Grima said that this system is the fruit of work and discussions carried out throughout the years with various sectors and schools as well as the Malta Union of Teachers.
‘An holistic education system which cares for the individual should not work on producing workers but producing better people who have skills with different potentials’ he said.
The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) is a backbone for the national curriculum, with the assessments gauging where students are in terms of knowledge, competence and skills.
The Learning Outcomes have one goal: that learning does not remain prescriptive but becomes based on the skills that a student can achieve. Pedagogy and assessment will be carried out through a progressive experience for students.
