The weighting of learning programmes refers to the percentage of time allocated to a specific learning programme. The Mathematics and Languages Learning Areas would be distinct learning programmes and will form the basis from which all other learning will take place. Other learning programmes could also address some of the learning outcomes and assessment standards required in the Mathematics and Language Learning Areas, thus facilitating total integration of the learning process across the eight Learning Areas.
Purposes for weighting is to:
• Give learners optimal opportunity to show their competence in achieving the learning outcomes, and
• Provide groups of learners who need intervention of a temporary nature the opportunity to engage with certain aspects of the curriculum.
