Northern Ireland Curriculum

The Northern Ireland Curriculum was introduced in 2007 and covers all 12 years of compulsory education.

It's a curriculum that focuses on the learning process and learners' needs, as well as their knowledge, understanding and skills.

The curriculum offers flexibility and specifies a minimum entitlement for all pupils. Schools have considerable scope to tailor this entitlement and to provide learning opportunities adapted to their own context and their pupils' needs.
