Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021

Sections 15 and 16 – Curriculum adoption, review and revision

29.Section 15 requires an FNNE provider to adopt a curriculum and publish a summary of it. The adopted curriculum must meet the requirements in Chapter 2 of Part 2.

30.The curriculum adopted by the FNNE provider may be that published by the Welsh Ministers under section 13 or another suitable curriculum.

31.Section 16 requires an FNNE provider to keep their adopted curriculum under review. They must ensure that it continues to comply with the requirements mentioned above, if necessary by revising it.

32.In considering whether the adopted curriculum continues to comply with those requirements, the FNNE provider must consider what has been shown by any assessment arrangements made by them under the Act. (The results of the assessment arrangements might, for instance, indicate that the curriculum is not making provision for appropriate progression and so needs to be revised to deal with this).

33.If the FNNE provider has adopted the curriculum published by the Welsh Ministers under section 13, and the Welsh Ministers revise that curriculum, the provider must consider whether to revise their adopted curriculum to reflect the revisions made by the Welsh Ministers.
