Teachers await detail of new curriculum in Wales

Teachers in Wales will discover the fine details of a long-awaited new curriculum this month.

It is four years since Professor Graham Donaldson, the architect of education reform in Scotland, published Successful Futures setting out a vision for a new curriculum in Wales.

Having faced some delays the Welsh government published its White Paper in January setting out proposals for the legislation required and a public consultation ended last month.

Wales’ education minister Kirsty Williams has described the process as “bringing forward our own made-in-Wales legislative proposals for the school curriculum”.

Under the Welsh government’s timetable, in the coming weeks the detailed content of the new curriculum – which is to be rolled out in 2022 – will be published for all schools to feedback and refine.
