Changes to Learning Outcomes

The Curriculum Review process, which has taken place over the last 24 months, has been focused on reviewing the Curriculum in order to ensure that it remains fit for purpose until the next major review in 2026. This “light touch” approach has seen:

  • Reduction of the number of learning outcomes by four, details of which are in this document.
  • Some of the Learning Outcomes amended and clearer examples in order to provide greater clarity for sign off.

The following Learning Outcomes have had their examples rewritten to provide greater clarity in the sign off process. Please note that if these Learning Outcomes are signed off already there is no need for any further action.
