The mission is to advise the Minister for Education and Skills on curriculum and assessment from early childhood to the end of second level, to engage with learners, teachers, practitioners, parents and others to support innovation in schools and other educational settings, and to undertake, use and share research as a basis for advice and debate on education.
During the Student Voice project, the Institute constructs toolboxes for working in partnership with students. The aim of this intellectual output is to develop a set of instruments, protocols, procedures, materials and case studies on the implementation of student voice and active learning. The content of the toolboxes will support teachers and schools to implement different models of working in partnership with students, giving them voice and develop their skills and attitudes to become responsible and democratic citizens.
SLO serves as the national institute for curriculum development in the Netherlands. It is an independent, non-profit organisation, bridging the contexts of policy, research and practice. A major characteristic of the work of SLO is the interaction between various levels of curriculum development (national, school, classroom, pupil). A main challenge for SLO is the strengthening of (both longitudinal and horizontal) coherence of curricula. The institute's activities focus on primary, special, secondary and vocational education and comprise all subjects.
