New professional learning
Welsh Government is working with a range of external partners and experts to develop professional learning resources to support practitioners including:
Developing new careers and work-related education professional learning.
Leading on national anti-racist professional learning to deliver the vision for an anti-racist education system.
Designing bespoke Religion, Values and Ethics (RVE) professional learning.
Developing Children’s Rights (UNCRC/UNCRPD) professional learning.
As the professional learning resources become available, they will be fully embedded into the existing national Curriculum for Wales development programme delivered by education consortia.
Work is also underway with a range of other partners to support education practitioners in the following areas:
- Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE)
- youth work sector
- creative arts
- literacy and oracy
Resources will be released through a phased approach and will range from ‘awareness raising’ to ‘aspiring for excellence.’
The following new professional learning resources are already available to support schools to plan for aspects of the new curriculum:
Visit the Careers Wales website to access support for careers and work-related experiences (CWRE) in the Curriculum for Wales.
Visit the DARPL virtual campus to access a diversity and anti-racism professional learning (DARPL) resource hub. Please note this site is currently under development.
Visit The Children’s Commissioner for Wales website to access the Commissioner’s updated children’s rights approach for education settings published in April 2022.
Policy insight events hosted by Welsh Government for education practitioners provide a taster of new resources under development. Two sessions have already been held and can be viewed from the links below:
Information on future sessions will be made available on the policy insight events page on Hwb.
