Launched: open procurement for new curricula and resources

Tom Rose

Education Director


Our procurement has closed and our curriculum partners have been announced. You can find out more about them in this blog.

After releasing our Prior Information Notice in June, we're pleased to confirm that our second round of open procurement launches today.

Following the successful partnerships we have begun in our first round of subjects, we're excited to be partnering with others to share the very best thinking that the sector has to offer in more subjects.

We are delighted to have been able to work with a diverse range of organisations from across the education sector and want to continue to do so to provide more teachers with a range of high-quality, optional curricula and resources.

Our aim is to pool the incredible expertise that exists across the country, so every teacher has the highest quality support available to them. This cycle of procurement is expected to cover curriculum sequences and teaching resources in:

  • PE
  • Computing
  • MFL
  • Relationship and Health Education (Primary) and Relationships and Sex and Health Education (Secondary)
  • Art and design
  • RE
  • Design & technology
  • Primary music
  • Secondary geography
  • Secondary citizenship
