New Curriculum for Wales offers opportunities for museums and heritage sites 3 Dec 2021

In 2022, the Welsh Government is rolling out a new Curriculum for Wales to primary and secondary schools, focused on skills development and sophistication of understanding, creativity and a sense of belonging, rather than covering an ever-growing body of content. The museum education charity GEM has been funded to provide training and support to Welsh museums to create useful learning opportunities within the new structure. The curriculum is built around four purposes, creating: ambitious, capable young people able to learn throughout their lives; enterprising, creative contributors at work; ethical, informed citizens and healthy, confident individuals.
