Acting today for a better tomorrow
Wales has adopted a new purpose-driven curriculum with the Well-being of Future Generations Act at its core.
The new curriculum embodies a long-term approach with an emphasis on developing well-rounded ethically informed Welsh citizens and a bold new approach to education and skills.
Learner mental health and well-being is a priority, with more climate and eco-literacy, equipping young learners with the necessary skills for a net zero world in which work, technology and society is constantly changing.
