General education programs
General education program classification, names and codes are determined by the Cabinet of Ministers. General Education Program is a document which sets out the educational program goals and objectives, educational content, curriculum implementation plan, the requirements for prior learning, learning assessment criteria and procedures. It also sets out assessment and reasoning of necessary personnel, financial and material resources for the implementation of educational programs.
NCE develops samples of learning subjects programs, which are used by pedagogues to create content and plan of lessons.
