The Pre-entry Level Curriculum Framework (DfES, 2002)
One of ten recommendations in ‘Freedom to Learn’:
‘A flexible and coherent curriculum at pre-entry level be developed to enable learners at this level to progress towards the entry-level curriculum’ (DfEE, 2000)
It is not a set syllabus to be followed by a group of learners, nor is it a teaching manual
Designed to allow individual learners to progress in their own way at their own pace
To be used by staff across sectors even though they may not describe themselves as ‘teachers’, ‘trainers’ or ‘educators’.
