What is the Core Curriculum?

The Core Curriculum describes the content of what should be taught in literacy, numeracy, ESOL and pre-entry programmes and sets out a clear set of skills required to meet national standards.

The revised curriculum on the Excellence Gateway is in the form of an interactive online tool that:

  • Promotes flexible and creative use of the curriculum content in a variety of learning contexts, including embedded learning
  • Enhances content and resources with additional guidance, exemplification and vocational material
  • Provides tools and features that will enable practitioners, including the wider embedded-learning audience, to create effective personal learning experiences
  • Provides an online community where ideas and innovation can be shared and developed
