Objectives and target groups
The Secondary Education programme is intended for learners who have been unable to gain admission to the formal education system for Grade 10 (JSC) or Grade 12 (NSSC). It is open to both out-of-school youth and adults. The objective is to allow this target group to study at their own pace and convenience in order to complete their JSC and NSSC subjects.
Note: The Namibian Senior Secondary Certiﬁcate (NSSC) curriculum was implemented nationally in Grade 11 in January 2006. This Curriculum has replaced the International General Certiﬁcate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) which was offered in collaboration with Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). NAMCOL has implemented the NSSC curriculum since 2007.
Currently, NAMCOL only offers the Ordinary Level of the Namibia Senior Secondary Certiﬁcate (NSSCO).
