Resumen: In response to the regional imperative for universal secondary education and the expressed desire for a certificate that embraces a wider spectrum of competencies than the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), which is currently taken by the majority of school leavers, the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) has developed a new secondary level certificate, the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC). This paper examines the English coomponent of the program, which was developed for the new certificate and assesses its soundness by: i) Outlining the rationale for the goals and content selected ii) Examining the fit of the curriculum goals and instructional activities and their appropriateness for fostering the desired outcomes iii) Assessing the extent and adquacy of the cultural emphases incorporated into the program It is concluded that critical educational, sociolinguistic and sociocultural factors have influenced the curriculum develpment process and this should provide for the consequential validity of the program.
