MADANG will implement the Standards-Based Education (SBE) system this year with a challenge to train more teachers.
Chairman of the provincial education board and director for provincial education Moses Sariki said all schools would start implementing the system as soon as their teachers received the required training.
Sariki said a team of officials would conduct a trainers training from February 2 to February 15. They would then go to all the six districts to train teachers from their clusters.
He said the training would start with elementary school teachers, then to the upper grades.
He said the Government was doing away with the outcomes-based education system and would implement the new system.
Sariki said teachers and students did not have teaching and learning guides under the OBE but they would do so under the SBE.
“After these training, elementary school teachers will put aside the outcomes-based education and start using standards-based education,” he said.
He said that the education structure would change under the new system.
“With the outcomes-based education, we have three years of elementary education, six years of primary and four years of high school secondary schooling.
“That will change to two years of elementary education, six years primary and six years of high school secondary education under the standards-base education system.
“This means that when a student starts school, there will be no exam in grade 8 or 10, there will be only one exam in grade 12,” Sariki said.
He said the Government and provincial governments must contribute more to this development to train more teachers to see the full implementation of the new system.
