Welcome to Nairobi Upperhill Junior Academy, where innovation meets education. In this blog post, we dive into one of our key pillars for fostering creativity in the classroom – the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). Discover how this forward-thinking approach transforms traditional teaching methods, empowering students to thrive in a dynamic world.
Understanding Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC):
The CBC is not just a curriculum; it’s a paradigm shift in education. Unlike traditional systems, the CBC focuses on developing specific skills and competencies rather than mere content memorization. It recognizes that each student learns at their own pace and places an emphasis on holistic development.
Key Features of CBC:
Customized Learning Paths:
CBC tailors education to individual students, allowing them to progress based on their understanding and mastery of concepts.

Emphasis on Practical Skills:
CBC places a strong emphasis on the practical application of knowledge.
Classroom activities are designed to develop real-world skills that students can apply in various situations.
Assessment is not confined to end-of-term exams; CBC incorporates continuous assessment methods.
Teachers regularly evaluate students based on their progress, providing timely feedback for improvement.
Nurturing Creativity through CBC:
