Thus, it will be from the 2025/2026 academic year that the fifth and sixth classes will have a new curricular model. According to the minister, at the time, the issue related to teaching in the fifth and sixth classes was addressed with a model that consists of the inclusion of a main teacher and two assistants so that they can, "from the next academic year", begin "work on the new model of curriculum management" in the aforementioned classes.

"The novelty in this proposal has to do, above all, with the introduction of the French language from next year onwards in fifth grade", said Luísa Grilo, quoted by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

Furthermore, she added that they are working on national languages of African origin. "(...) Our languages of African origin, we are working on because we still don't have enough material available. We already have studies, we have already trained some of our teachers so that they are capable of producing texts in our languages, in last month, for the eight languages that are codified and that we are working with the Ministry of Culture in this regard", she said.

Therefore, she said that they believe that in the next academic year they will already be able to introduce English and French, as they will already have qualified staff: "We believe that in the next academic year 2025/2026 we will be able to introduce both the English language and the French language because we will already have qualified human resources".

Remember that in October last year, the Ministry of Education had already announced that it was going to implement a new teaching model, on an experimental basis, in the fifth and sixth classes, which consisted of the inclusion of a main teacher and two assistants. At the time, the authority said that, in the first phase, this system would be implemented in 144 selected schools in the country's 18 provinces.

The Advisory Council, where topics such as the challenges of human resources management were addressed, the distribution of scholarships from the Girls Empowerment and Learning for All Project - PAT II, pre-school and primary education, school management and the modalities of assessment in the educational system, took place under the motto "The teachers we need for the education we want – The global imperative to reverse the teacher shortage".
