There is no compulsory sitting  for final assessment of vocational  subjects, NCDC


Following a new curriculum introduced at the grassroots level back in 2020 aimed at developing and developing learners' skills, the National Curriculum Development Center has made it clear that students are not obliged to write final practical examinations.


Because of the seemingly high cost involved in qualifying for the examination under the scheme when a person pays a mandatory fee of She.80,000, most students especially from lower backgrounds prefer to miss out. This, however, according to John Okumu, NCDC Department Manager, has little impact as the process aims to help potential students drop out before completing the education cycle to acquire the basic life skills that can enable them to earn a living though not verified.


The Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT) is an assessment framework responsible for the assessment and accreditation of students in terms of acquired skills, which is designed to evaluate the priorities of this learning program next year. According to Byakatonda Patrick the Acting Director of DIT, a private school is required to pay SHS. 350,000 as registration number of the institution in addition to registration with the Department of Education and Sport via the UNEB institution number.
