The Future of the Curriculum: Built from the Bottom Up or Sent from the Top Down

County Hall Suite

‘The Curriculum Foundation is a not-for-profit social enterprise organisation which was established in 2008 to pursue the vision of a World Class Curriculum for every learner. In my session, we will explore What, Why and How the Foundation has worked with ministries of education around the world to redesign a national curriculum based on values and principles. We recognise the importance of knowledge but believe that knowledge alone is not enough. Young people need to become highly competent and therefore the curriculum must ensure they can develop the skills and attitudes to complement their knowledge.’
