The idea of creating the African Curriculum Association (ACA) was born during a Regional Seminar on “Advanced Training in Systematic Curriculum Development and Evaluation” that took place in Ghana in 1975 and the approval of its creation by Ministers of Education of the Organisation of the African Union (OAU) ‘s Member States happened during the Conference of Ministers of Education in 1976 in Nigeria. ACA was created with the aim to make it an umbrella which brings together all curriculum practitioners in Africa and some affiliated members from European countries.
