Secondary, policy, theory .This report, helpfully broken down into specific subject areas, looks at challenges face in the delivery of the curriculum and reviews the approaches taken or planned by schools to address these. The Education and Training Inspectorate (ETI) was commissioned by the Northern Irish Department of Education as part of the Continuity of Learning Programme, to provide guidance on effective ways in which the curriculum could be tailored (planned for, implemented and assessed) across the range of areas of learning and subject areas for a phased return for children to full-time education. The Department asked for a series of pieces of work which would reflect the changing circumstances in which schools are working to provide up-to-date advice and guidance on an ongoing basis. This publication represents the first phase of that work. Across June 2020, the ETI met with reference groups of curricular co-ordinators, Heads of Departments and leaders on a cross-sectional basis from across Northern Ireland to seek their views on the challenges of remote learning and teaching, and what approaches they might take in moving towards the return to school with as many children and young people as possible, complemented by blended learning where necessary.
