Covid-19 has created an unprecedented disruption to education systems across the world. One of the consequences thereof was the reduced time in teaching and learning resulting in substantial learning losses across subjects and grades. In order to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on learning and teaching, the Department of Basic Education adopted a multi-year curriculum recovery approach.
The recovery curriculum is designed to accommodate the negative impact of Covid-19 and is therefore an interim deviation from the original curriculum and a transitional arrangement until the policy amendment processes are completed.
The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has published Revised Annual Teaching and Assessment Plans and Mediated Presentations per phase and subject for easy retrieval. Please see the 2023/ 2024 Revised ATPs as received from the Department of Basic Education here: https://www.education.gov.za/Curriculum/NationalCurriculumStatementsGradesR-12/2023ATPs.aspx
