Upcoming curriculum reform in Turkey

The Turkish Education Ministry is preparing to reform the country’s education curriculum across all levels.

It’s a large project and more than 50 different curricula will be taken into account. The aim is to simplify the current content, whilst encouraging the students to develop creative and analytical skills.

The Ministry says that there will be a consultation period where teachers and education experts will be able to offer their opinions about the proposals. The country’s PISA results will also feed into the proposed changes.

Subjects such as arts and sports will be given more prominence in the new curriculum and will take into account the notion of physical activity for life-long healthy living; not just formal sport.
