The Core Curriculum Unit is responsible for the design and development of the curriculum at the national level, ensuring its relevance and response to the national needs through continuous assessment. It supports and monitors the delivery of the curriculum in schools in Jamaica. Science Education is seen as critical for national sustainable development. Consequently the Ministry of Education through its Core Curriculum Unit places emphasis on improving the quality of teaching and learning in science. As part of these functions the National Science Coordinator through the Core Curriculum Unit has taken the lead in the expansion of the micro-science programme in Jamaica, with close partnership with Guyana and other implementing territories.
