This project aimed to develop an innovative approach to curriculum and pedagogy centred on learners using an enquiry-based learning style. It wanted to explore what a fully personalised curriculum would look like - one in which young learners are able to develop autonomy and independence, have the ability to work effectively with others, are resilient when faced with challenges, are able to celebrate success and deal with disappointment, and have a clear sense that what they do in school is meaningful and useful to them.
The research from the project is available here.
