The NSW Curriculum Reform will deliver a new curriculum for all students Kindergarten to Year 12 by 2024.
The syllabuses of this new curriculum are designed to ensure every student learns with understanding, builds skills in applying knowledge, and makes excellent ongoing progress in their learning.
As teachers and school leaders, you will have access to a range of short, practical professional learning modules to support the implementation of this new curriculum.
This learning is flexible; you can complete available modules in any order and at any time; as an individual or with colleagues.
You can also choose modules that best align with your school and individual performance and development goals, and the learning needs of your students.
Each Curriculum Reform professional learning module takes about 15 minutes to complete and can be accessed on any device through MyPL.
Once enrolled, you will also be notified as new modules become available. Visit the department’s Curriculum Reform website for further information.
