Whole school considerations

Schools may need to consider the following if delivering Critical thinking in 2022:

  • provision of adequate time for planning and programming
  • resourcing, including
    • staffing
    • new teaching resources and materials
  • budget implications to upskill teachers, including casual release.

The Critical thinking course has been developed in consultation with schools that previously delivered the course as a school-developed board endorsed course, however, there have been significant changes to the course content and requirements.

Important information:

  • Critical thinking may be delivered as a 100 or 200-hour course
  • A set of resources has been published to support the implementation of Critical thinking in schools, including
    • course documents
    • sample scope and sequences
    • assessment advice.
