Caribbean Curriculum is an annual peer-reviewed journal of the School of Education, The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. It provides a forum for the publication of scholarly articles on the education systems of the English-speaking Caribbean written by scholars both within and outside the region.
Caribbean Curriculum begun publication in May 1985 as a biannual journal. In 2001 the journal changed to an annual publication. In 2009, the Editorial structure was reconstituted and persons were invited to serve on the Editorial Advisory Board and the Editorial Committee of the journal for three years in the first instance, with the option to renew membership.
