Education is changing
The national curriculum was first introduced in 1988 before on-line shopping, Google and the Cloud. Now, the world of work is different, technology is different, society is constantly changing.
Our Curriculum for Wales has been designed to support young people develop the skills they need to make the most of life.
It will equip them with high standards of literacy and numeracy, and prepare them to become more digitally and bilingually competent, and to be confident, capable and compassionate citizens – citizens of Wales and citizens of the world.
Our curriculum, is made in Wales by teachers, partners, practitioners, and the wider community , shaped by the best ideas from around the world.
Assessment is part of each child’s learning every day and they’ll work with their teachers to understand how well they’re doing.
The new curriculum is being rolled out gradually, so by 2026 all learners will be taught under the Curriculum for Wales.
