We are committed to building a world-class education and training framework.

We regulate, develop and modernise the curriculum, assessments, examinations and qualifications.

Our vision is to provide a coherent and integrated curriculum and assessment framework for schools, which raises standards of achievement and widens educational opportunity.

We are responsible for keeping the whole school curriculum and its assessment arrangements under review and advising the Minister for Education and Skills accordingly.

Key areas of work include drafting the content of the National Curriculum subjects (known as the National Curriculum Subject Orders) at all key stages, and may include providing non-statutory frameworks for aspects of the basic curriculum. We also advise on the statutory assessment arrangements.
