Best Education was the first organisation to offer online resources, including the entire CAPS curriculum and as we are officially recognised by the Department of Education, we fully support their vision and strive to ensure that you benefit from the resources available.CAPS stands for Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements and is a revision of the National Curriculum Statement (NCS). Since the introduction of CAPS, every subject in each grade has a single, comprehensive and concise policy document that provides details on what teachers need to teach and assess on a grade-by-grade and subject-by-subject basis. This curriculum review has the aim of lessening the administrative load on teachers, and ensuring that there is clear guidance and consistency for teachers when teaching.
