THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
As a new curriculum in Wales is developed with involvement from a range of bodies, this timely conference will bring parties together to discuss objectives and priorities for its successful co-construction - with the Welsh Government planning for its implementation in schools from September 2018, before a full statutory roll out of the new curriculum in 2022.
Delegates will discuss the reform initiatives and how they might be better aligned; the role of pioneer schools as innovators and developers of curriculum reform, and the policy priorities for turning into reality the vision for curriculum reform in Wales proposed by Professor Graham Donaldson and accepted by the Welsh Government.
Further sessions will consider key issues around leadership and direction in the formulation of the curriculum; challenges for ensuring that the new curriculum is focused, robust and underscored by clarity and organisational cohesion; engagement with those not directly involved in the curriculum reform process; and opportunities for innovation.
