How can you use the NZC as a driver for curriculum change?
The New Zealand Curriculum empowers schools to exercise:
...the scope, flexibility, and authority they need to design and shape their curriculum so that teaching and learning is meaningful and beneficial for their particular communities of students.
The school curriculum: Design and review
For every school, curriculum review is an ongoing process as the needs of students, their communities, and wider society change and curriculum understanding deepens.
The principles of The New Zealand Curriculum are the foundations that guide every aspect of curriculum decision making. Curriculum review involves challenging your understanding of the principles, values, key competencies, and learning areas to ensure your curriculum continues to meet the needs of your students.
