Welsh people urged to participate in education debate

06/05/2015 Joanna
Welsh education minister Huw Lewis has urged people to have their say in the Great Debate on the future of education in Wales.

Launched in response to Successful Futures, Professor Graham Donaldson's independent, comprehensive review of curriculum and assessment arrangements in Wales, the Great Debate will reach its conclusion on Friday (May 8th).

In recent weeks, debates have taken place across the country - in areas such as Bangor, Swansea and Nantgarw, all of which were attended by Professor Donaldson.

A number of online resources have also been made available on the Welsh Government website, which are designed to help people start their own debate on education. Views can be submitted via an online survey.

Mr Lewis said: "I urge anyone who has not yet had their say to do so by going online and play their part in shaping the Welsh curriculum of the future."

A formal statement on the next steps will be made after the responses to the Great Debate have been considered. The education minister will then make a formal response to Successful Futures later in the summer.
