Children and young people's learning will progress through six curricular levels from the ages of 3 to 18. Each of the levels generally spans 3 years. However, children progress at different rates and some may take longer or need additional support, while others will achieve confident learning skills sooner.
Effective transition arrangements are especially important in Curriculum for Excellence to ensure continuity of learning for each pupil. Key transitions are from nursery to primary, from primary to secondary and during the Senior Phase to ensure a positive destination into higher education, work, training or college.
The curriculum will help children and young people develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.
Curriculum for Excellence is an approach to teaching which is interactive between teachers and those children and young people with whom they are working.
Curriculum for Excellence provides increased opportunities to link learning across different curricular areas for example, planet earth draws on sciences but could also include geography and mathematics.
Children and young people will experience a broad range of learning at an appropriate level of challenge and have opportunities to apply their skills and knowledge in a variety of situations.
