The findings of the external task and finish group following their review of the local curriculum offer at Key Stage 4 (KS4).

In 2012 the National Assembly’s Children and Young People Committee (CYPC) published a report following their inquiry into the Learning and Skills (Wales) Measure 2009. The report can be found on the National Assembly for Wales website (external link).

The CYPC’s recommendation to review the decision to set 30 courses as the minimum number required to form a local curriculum offer at KS4 was accepted by the then Minister for Education and Skills.

An independent group of sector representatives, Chaired by Claire Armitstead - Headteacher of Rhyl High School, were brought together between February and September 2013 to take forward the review.

The Group submitted its final report and recommendations to the Minister for Education and Skills for consideration in October 2013.

The Government response to the recommendations is also attached.
