Challenges for the Welsh Baccalaureate

We have developed Community and Global Citizenship challenges and themes for Individual Projects on all of our Key Stage 4 lessons and have also based some on our Key Stage 3 lessons. You will find challenges written specifically for each of the lessons in our Challenges for the Welsh Baccalaureate handbook below.

In this section of the website, we provide follow up material to support teachers.

Within the pupil section, students can research further into specific topics.

The context of the challenges applies to all the lessons:

  • “Following your visit from your Schools Police Officer (SPO), identify and develop your own perspective about an issue in your area. What do you think would be the best way to deal with / support / or prevent this issue?”

The skills learners will demonstrate and their importance:

  • As well as developing outcomes such as thinking, questioning, decision-making, solving problems, working together and empathy skills, through our challenges, students will gain Creative Thinking, Problem Solving, Creativity and Innovation, Planning and Organisation, and Personal Effectiveness as Essential Skills.

More information is also available on the WJEC website.
