This seminar examined the key issues surrounding the design and implementation of the new school curriculum in Wales.
Ahead of the introduction of a curriculum and assessment Bill, the seminar discussed key issues emerging from the Welsh Government’s consultation, and those attending considered new curriculum and assessment arrangements.
The conference also examined the implications of curriculum reform for 14-16 qualifications.
Delegates discussed the design and delivery of qualifications in order to meet the needs of students, FE, HE and employers.
Further sessions examined the introduction of new assessment arrangements alongside the curriculum, aiming to ensure effective learner progression.
The agenda also looked at the inspection arrangements for the new curriculum as Estyn begins a series of consultations, including the proposal to partially suspend inspections for maintained schools between 2020-21 in a Transition Year.
Delegates also considered how to prepare and support experienced and newly-qualified teachers, in terms of increased freedoms in teaching, and the process of phased implementation.
Those attending examined issues around effective implementation, such as resources, funding, content, and the six proposed areas of learning and experience.
