Title: What’s new and how can I get involved?
How is the Skills Framework implemented in your school? Are the skills of the framework fully developed and embedded in Schemes of Work and everyday teaching?
The Minister of Education in Wales (Leighton Andrews) has recently highlighted the importance of the effective implementation of this key document in all schools in Wales and it is paramount that we all make an effort to develop a curriculum that will facilitate and support the development of the skills outlined in the Skills Framework for our learners. Ian Morgan and Alessio Bernardelli will show how NGfL Cymru provides a wealth of resources that address the Skills Framework. They will also talk about the latest developments in NGfL Cymru for the professional development of all teachers in Wales and beyond.
