What is Curriculum for Excellence?
‘It’s all changed since I was at school.’
We all have memories of what life was like for us at school and will notice changes in our own children. In this world of new technology and growth our children sometimes have greater knowledge and skills than we have!
As times change, education and schools have to adapt to keep up with these changes taking place in the world around us.
Curriculum for Excellence is a new way of looking at the curriculum that builds on best existing practices in Scottish Education. It is a continuing process to encourage more learning through experiences to best ensure that children and young people are prepared for the complex world they will be living in.
