St Giles’ Centre staff, Libby Jones and Tania ap Siôn, were delighted to host the Welsh Government’s Religion, Values and Ethics (RVE) Policy Insight Event on behalf of the Wales Association of SACREs.
The aim of the online Policy Insight Events is to keep stakeholders up to date with professional learning developments for the Curriculum for Wales. The Event, focusing on professional learning resources for RVE on 26 April 2022, was very well attended with around 105 attendees.
Kevin Palmer (Deputy Director, Pedagogy, Leadership and Professional Learning) introduced the hour-long session by speaking of his personal interest in and support for RVE, and the significant place of RVE in learners’ education today. This was followed by a short video sharing several other voices on the value of RVE and its place within the Curriculum for Wales, including the Right Revd Mary Stallard, Sergeant David Smith, Emma Davies (a primary education student), and Gareth Hall (a Humanist school speaker and university chaplain).
The Event explained why national RVE professional learning resources were needed, who has been involved in the project, and the process being followed. Details were shared about the resources and a couple of draft modules were explored in more detail. There was also opportunity for participants to talk about what they had seen and heard from their own perspectives.
If you were unable to attend the Event or want to share the Event with others, a recording has just been published on Hwb, which can be accessed here.
The professional learning resources will also be published on Hwb later this term, and we will let you know as soon as this happens.
