Chris (2009) mentioned that a national syllabus contains aims and objectives for the whole twoyears and it is a long term goal and expectations for instance ability to apply and evaluateaccounting policies. The assessment objectives are tested during the exam and they are drawnfrom Bloom Taxonomy from lower order to higher order that is testing knowledge,comprehension, synthesis, evaluation among others. School aims are generally tested at the endof every term using Boom Taxonomy specification grid. The school syllabi does not specify theexclusions but the national syllabi will do so. It is important on guiding the teacher on the extentof work involved in a particular class and preparation of activities because the content isarranged in a sequential order. The teacher cannot plan from the national syllabus because it doesnot arrange topics in logical order and does not cater for resources available at every school.Atherton (2013) states that a scheme of work is drawn from the school syllabi and split topicsinto subtopics covering certain related material which can be taught in a certain order.

Before the teacher prepare the scheme they must beconversant with or highly knowledgeable about the subject matter before hand, so that sensiblescheme can emerge. The teacher should identify some of equipment, teaching aids or any otherapparatus that may be required in teaching and learning of the content. It lays out teachingmethods to be used which are not stated in the syllabuses and make teaching subject moremanageable.Scheme of work are extremely flexible teaching guides that can be modules to take account oflocal teaching needs and resources, there are not set method of developing a scheme.

must consider the needs of the learner, interests and cognitive development of pupils in order to
