Angola: Ministry of Education Updates Agrarian Institutes Curriculum

Luanda — The Curriculum Review and Updating Project of the Medium Agrarian Institutes that aims to design, produce and implement new curriculum materials in all non-higher education subsystems was launched Friday in Luanda by the Ministry of Education (MED).

The project also aims to gradually replace the current curriculum materials from 2022 until the total replacement in 2025, as well as create conditions to regulate the lifetime of the materials.

According to Secretary of State for Preschool and General Education, Pacheco Francisco, this review will provide quality education that promotes the external effectiveness of the vocational secondary education subsystem.

Ensuring food security and self-sufficiency is one of the main objectives of education and agriculture policies and strategies in the pursuit of the promotion of agrarian research and the training of cadres in this sector.

There are ten medium agrarian institutes and five basic agricultural technical schools in the country, and 262 courses have been created as part of the extension of training programme, of which 131 are in operation and an equal number await the creation of conditions for educational resources.

The ceremony, which took place under the motto "Upgrade to innovate, train to develop", was attended by the directors of the country's Medium Agrarian Institutes, and the Ministry of Education.
