Second stage of Learning Country
A review of the document has been put on hold, pending the merger of the Assembly government's training and education department with ACCAC, the Welsh qualifications, curriculum and assessment authority, and ELWa, the post-16 funding agency.
But the government's special adviser on education, Professor David Egan, told primary practitioners earlier this month that The Learning Country 2 would "talk up" teacher pedagogy.
"It will link around work on the foundation phase and 14-19 education," he said. "We can't achieve our ambitions until we make teachers and lecturers confident practitioners who are fully involved in developing their own pedagogy and sharing it."
Professor Egan was speaking at the launch in Cardiff of the National Primary Centre Cymru's summer 2005 report. The centre's next conference 'Listeners to Learners' takes place in Rhonnda Cynon Taf on November 4. See www.npccymru.org.uk
