INTO curriculum consultation online focus group

As part of our ongoing Curriculum Consultation, the INTO has organised a focus group discussion to allow members share their responses to the Draft Primary Curriculum Framework. In line with public health guidelines and current Covid-19 restrictions, this focus group will be hosted online on Wednesday, 25 November from 7pm – 8:30pm (with more focus groups to follow in the spring term).

This session will provide information on the key elements of the draft framework, highlighting the proposals within this document and the rationale for such developments. Attendees will be afforded the opportunity to engage in discussion with fellow teachers (in a small group context) on the proposals within the draft framework.

The responses garnered through this discussion with members will help to inform INTO’s interim submission to the NCCA in December 2020, together with other feedback submitted through online correspondence and completion of our questionnaire.

We hope that you can join us for this online discussion and look forward to hearing your views.

Members are asked to register for this event via this link no later than 1pm on Wednesday, 25 November. (Please note that places are limited so early registration is advised).

Further details on INTO’s consultation can be found here.

Without doubt, the most important person in the curriculum implementation process is the teacher. With their knowledge, experiences and competencies, teachers are central to any curriculum development effort.
