National curriculum V core curriculum

Discussion in 'Further Education' started by awaythelads, Jan 6, 2011.

  1. I am about to start an assignment on the core curriculum and would like to know if the nation curriculum and the core curriculum the same thing. It appears to me that they are when reading information on the DFES site. Has anyone else completed an assignment as part of the PGCE who could provide me with any ideas?
  2. i am looking for the same thing. I am also studying for my PGCE. Good luck

    If you are training to teach in the post-16 sector, maybe you need to consider the Skills for Life Core Curriculum (http://www.excellencegateway.org.uk/sflcurriculum) which relates to the National Curriculum (Key Stages 1 to 4) for Maths, English and ICT. You also may need to consider Functional Skills (http://tlp.excellencegateway.org.uk/tlp/fs/fs-resources/)
    But the details you give are a bit vague!
  4. No, though they may share many commonalities, they are different curriculums - directed at different groups.
    National Curriculum is primarily school based for KS1-KS4. Core curriculum is directed at adults primarily, but can include those under 16 on apprenticeships, in prison etc, in addition to being used with those who are 16+.
