There has been a 2.6% rise in young people from Wales enrolling at UK universities and a 9.2% increase in postgraduates from Wales say figures published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
Education Minister, Kirsty Williams AM, published the revised Curriculum for Wales on Tuesday 28th January 2020. The new guidance has been revised following the feedback the draft curriculum received in April 2019. Not only is it simpler and shorter, but it allows every school in Wales the opportunity to design their own curriculum within a national approach that guarantees regularity.
The Education Minister said:
"Improving education is our national mission and nothing is as essential as universal access to the experiences, knowledge and skills and that our young people need for employment, lifelong learning and active citizenship."
The Minister also confirmed an additional £15 million would be made available to support teachers and schools during the curriculum's implementation. £12 million will be going directly to schools for professional learning.
