Outdoor Learning in Wales

Wales is divided into three regions, each of which includes a National Park and one of the three Welsh Outdoor Charter Groups. (These are grass roots movements set up by local practitioners to help them look after their ‘office’ and are open to any practitioner operating within Wales). North Wales (the Heart of Adventure) stretches from northernmost Anglesey to the southern boundary of the rugged Snowdonia National Park; from the wild western coast of the Llyn peninsula to the English border and includes Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham and northern Powys. This area has given rise to the North Wales Environmental Outdoor Charter Group. South-West Wales includes Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and of course Pembrokeshire with its glorious Coastal National Park (the only one in the UK) which is looked after by the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group. South-East Wales covers the Vale of Glamorgan, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport, Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Bridgend and southern Powys and includes the beautiful silent reaches of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Practitioners here and from further west set up the South Wales Outdoor Activity Providers Group. Wales has a long tradition of providing Outdoor Learning for people of all ages and abilities. Providers here have a strong commitment to sustainability (environmental, economic and cultural) and inclusivity. They also celebrate the opportunities that a vibrant Welsh culture offers to all.

Curriculum for Wales 2022

The Government plans to improve teaching in schools

Overview

 

The national mission is to raise standards, reduce the attainment gap, and deliver an education system that is a source of national pride and public confidence. Curriculum for Wales 2022, made in Wales but shaped by the best from around the world, is fundamental to achieving that mission.

 

The next few years are crucial in achieving ambitions which are shared – and demanded – across Wales. We need to ensure that our children and young people are able to lead fulfilling personal, civic and professional lives in our modern democracy.

Both at a national level and at a setting and school level, the curriculum needs to prepare children and young people to thrive in a future where digital skills, adaptability and creativity are crucial, where there is a blend of experiences, knowledge and skills, and that is rooted in Welsh values and culture.

Curriculum for Wales 2022 seeks to allow for a broadening of learning, supporting settings and schools to be more flexible in their approaches, and provides education leaders and practitioners with greater agency, enabling them to be innovative and creative.

At the heart of this are the four purposes of the curriculum, setting out the aspirations for all children and young people by the age of 16, enabling them to be successful learners, who play an active part in their community and wider society, and who are prepared to thrive in an increasingly complex world.
