TUVALU NATIONAL CURRICULUM POLICY FRAMEWORK
The Tuvalu National Curriculum and Policy Framework (TNCPF) is based on our belief that our children and students will be provided with the best educational experiences in our schools and learning centers. This framework is the new direction for all Tuvaluan children and students based on our values and aspirations taking into account the needs of our citizens and our country’s future.

The reformation of the Tuvalu curriculum will greatly influence the functions of the MEYS. This is the beginning of the new education journey for Tuvalu. The TNCPF is derived from many sources including best practices in Pacific and International education and research documents about national priorities in education. We need to build on these experiences and take account of their history.
