Discuss curriculum, says EIS

Have your say

A UNION has launched a national survey of teachers and lecturers ahead of the implementation of the Curriculum for Excellence for senior
students this summer.

The Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) study will ask members if they believe their schools and colleges are ready to deal with the new teaching framework. The curriculum was introduced to younger pupils at the start of the current school year last August.

EIS general secretary Larry Flanagan said: “Feedback from EIS members across Scotland has suggested a high degree of concern amongst teachers and lecturers regarding the progress of the senior phase.

“We have launched this survey to gather firm, statistically robust, evidence of concerns over the implementation 

“The EIS supports the curriculum and wants to see it succeed, but issues such as workload, access to information and support, and resourcing must be addressed to allow the
programme to deliver on its promise.”
