Wales

RE Today continues to work extensively with schools, initial teacher training providers, and other Religion Values & Ethics (RVE) professionals across Wales. We have a full-time adviser based in Cardiff too!

All of our advisers are keen to engage with even more teachers and learners in Wales and are excited at the prospect of supporting schools to deliver the very best RVE within the new curriculum context.

Here are some useful resources and information to support you in your teaching of RVE:

FREE Support Materials for RVE in Wales

With the generous support of Partneriaeth and the Westhill Endowment, we are pleased to bring you a range of free support materials for RVE.

These materials are intended to give you ideas and inspiration to help you build a bespoke RVE curriculum for learners at your school. We have worked closely with teachers and other RVE professionals in Wales to ensure that these resources are helpful and align with the principles of the Curriculum for Wales.

We are delighted that these support materials are in the process of being translated into Welsh so that they can be available to all learners and teachers across Wales.

Facebook group for RVE teachers

Facebook group for RVE teachers

With support from RE Advisers in Wales, we have set up a community-driven Facebook group for teachers of RVE. Its purpose is for teachers in Wales who will have responsibility for RVE or who will be working in the Humanities AoLE to share resources, offer advice and support, and to share best practices. The group has over 1.3k members - come and join us!

(NB: This group is intended to offer support and networking opportunities for teachers and other RVE professionals IN Wales. Teachers in other areas of the UK will find lots of broader groups available.)

Case Study:

Succeed at GCSE RS in Wales

School/Organisation Name:

Secondary teachers in Wales

What did they need?

The course focuses on ways to help teachers successfully manage the demands of the more content-rich and academically demanding GCSE RS specification.

Working with RE Today

This one-day GCSE course is designed to meet the requirements of the WJEC specification for Wales. The RE Adviser worked with teachers with varying levels of experience and who work in very different contexts. Equipping them with ready-to-use learning and teaching resources and ideas, the day was full of discussion, modelling of classroom activities and ideas for strategic planning.

How did we do?

Lisa James, Curriculum Leader for Religion and Philosophy at Cardiff High School

“A fantastic day! Lots of ideas and resources to take and use straight away. Plenty of practical suggestions for helping student to achieve the best grades even if you are pushed for time. Excellent value and I would highly recommend to anyone teaching GCSE RS in Wales.”
