Minister Accepts ‘Successful Futures’ Recommendations in Full


Education Minister, Huw Lewis has announced the Welsh Government will accept all 68 recommendations in “Successful Futures”, Professor Graham Donaldson’s far-reaching, independent report on curriculum and assessment arrangements in Wales.

The Minister confirmed he is establishing an Independent Advisory Group, chaired by Professor Donaldson and supported by Professor John Furlong, whose own independent report on initial teacher training in Wales, “Teaching Tomorrow’s Teachers” was published recently. The Group will offer guidance and support as progress is made towards realising the radical vision set out in Successful Futures.

Regional Education Consortia will be asked to identify primary and secondary Pioneer Schools who will be invited to take the lead on the development and design of the new curriculum, working with experts from Wales and internationally.
