Teachers to shape new curriculum

Wales’ education minister has called on teachers to work with the government to develop the new curriculum.

Speaking ahead of the publication of a review of the national curriculum, Huw Lewis said the education profession would be “critical” in delivering the new Curriculum for Wales and invited professionals to work with the government on implementing the changes.

The minister said: “The national curriculum of 1988 has served an important purpose but the message from Graham Donaldson’s review will be that it has had its day.”

He continued: “We know our new made-in-Wales curriculum will take time to evolve and roll out, but both Professor Donaldson and I are clear that the teaching profession must play a central role in developing, and of course delivering what is to come. Of course we have already had the debate about school standards in Wales. Ambitious reforms are underway and change is happening.
