Aims & Objectives

Our Curriculum and Assessment Review Conference comes at a time of unprecedented change to the design and delivery of education in Wales. With a comprehensive, wide ranging and independent review underway, as well as a number of working groups all designed to herald a clear vision for education in Wales, now is the time to consider the implications of these changes to the every day running of your school.

With statutory changes to the curriculum being realised from 2015, this conference addresseskey areas of change including:

• Revision to the areas of learning and the programmes of study to align with the Literacy and Numeracy Framework
• Expanding the LNF from the Foundation stage towards the new GCSEs and Welsh Baccalaureate
• Advancement of 21st skills around science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and computing
• Developing the right approach to assessment and the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)
• Preparing staff and students for a new curriculum with strategic development and resource planning

Attend this event to take away workable strategies and practical steps for the smooth implementation of the forthcoming seminal reforms, ultimately ensuring students are well prepared for future jobs.
