Schools Council Documents and Publications.


Scope and Content: Reports of the Schools Council's Syllabus Steering Groups, published as part of the Council's 18+ research programme. The reports contain proposals for reform of sixth-form curricula and examinations, based on Schools Council proposals for a two-level syllabus and examination structure - (N)ormal and (F)urther levels - to replace A-level. The papers were produced with a possible view to making recommendations to the Secretary of State for Education at a date after Jul 1979.

Each report includes between two to seven studies on a particular subject, such as English or Art. The studies are by 'commissioned groups' such as educational institutions, examination boards, and education committees, and they contain specimen 'N' and 'F' syllabuses, assessment schemes and question papers. Also included in each report is an evaluation of those studies by the relevant Schools Council Syllabus Steering Group (presented to the Joint Examinations Sub-Committee of the Schools Council).

Schools Council Project Technology publications.


Administrative History

Project Technology was set up by the Schools Council in 1968. The 'brief' was to produce guidance for schools wanting to include technology studies in their curriculum, and to obtain support from industry and further education for the teaching of technology in all schools. The Project produced a wide range of teaching materials, fully tested in a number of schools and revised before final publication.
