Curriculum refers to the comprehensive set of planned learning experiences offered to students by an educational institution (Brady & Kennedy, 2020). It involves a blend of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that learners should acquire during their schooling experience (Odendaal & Jita, 2020). In the South African education context, the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) was a previous curriculum that aimed to integrate knowledge and skills to enable learners to contribute to the socio-economic development of the country (Department of Education, 2002). CAPS, an acronym for Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement, is a revision of the NCS (Department of Basic Education, 2011). Introduced by the South African Department of Basic Education in 2011, CAPS outlines the teaching, learning, and assessment for grades R-12. It provides educators with detailed guidelines on what they should teach and assess on a grade-by-grade and subject-by-subject basis (Msila, 2018). CAPS was implemented to improve the quality of education in South Africa. It provides clearer specifications of what is to be taught and assessed at each grade level and supports teachers in their teaching and assessment practices (Department of Basic Education, 2011).
