Leading Curriculum Change: the NSW approach
Paper Presentation | Friday 23rd of June, 2:35pm |
Dr Perry Wong and Dr Amy Birungi
The NSW curriculum reform seeks to create an education system that meets the needs of every child. The NSW Department of Education is implementing a comprehensive model of support to ensure that all schools are well-prepared and are able to confidently teach the new syllabuses.
A project was implemented in 2022 with almost 400 early adopter schools who trialled the model of support while implementing the new syllabuses for English and mathematics. A mixed-methods approach was adopted to test this project, informing refinements to the model as it is applied to other new syllabuses and across different stages of school.
