Priority Issue – Curriculum Fit for Oldham

In the past few years Oldham Youth Council has worked hard on ensuring there is a curriculum fit for young people for Oldham, that is one which educates young people on subjects beyond the standard national curriculum in order to ensure that they are well informed and prepared for adult life. We have helped Oldham Council develop a 14 Point Pledge for schools to abide by, including making sure that all young people take part in a democratic process (our biannual Youth Council elections are a great way to do this). The Curriculum For Life campaign has also been run regionally and nationally.
