Scotland is currently pursuing its biggest education reform programme for a generation under the Scottish Executive’s Ambitious, Excellent Schools agenda.
A Curriculum for Excellence is central to this reform agenda. At its heart, it is the programme of work that is reviewing the current curriculum. It aims to provide:
- More freedom for teachers
- Greater choice and opportunity for pupils
- A single coherent curriculum for all young people aged 3-18.
A Curriculum for Excellence challenges us to think differently about the curriculum. It encourages those working in education to plan and act in new ways. It also poses challenges for learning and teaching.
More information is available from the curriculum for excellence national website.
