Isle Of Man / Ellan Vannin

Views sought on Manx curriculum

A public consultation has begun on the Isle of Man into how well education prepares young people for work.

The consultation focuses on what the curriculum for pupils aged 14-19 should offer.

It is also asking for views on the Department of Education and Children funding for students taking university degrees.

The document asks how the curriculum can engage all young people and what vocational pathways should be offered.

Minister for Education and Children, Eddie Teare MHK, said: "In this highly competitive environment, we have to recognise that if the island is to prosper, our young people must be equipped with the skills to enable them to fully participate in the workplace.

"Our economy has changed and the education system should also adapt.

"There are various opinions as to what the education system should deliver and we are seeking the views of the public."

It runs until Friday 17 June and can be viewed online.
