The Knowledge Promotion Reform (KPR), a comprehensive curriculum reform, was introduced in autumn 2006. The reform covers primary, lower secondary and upper secondary education and training. The reform places increased focus on basic skills and knowledge promotion through outcome-based learning.

In the Subject Curricula the five basic skills are integrated and adapted to each subject. These skills are: the ability to express oneself orally, the ability to read, numeracy, the ability to express oneself in writing, and the ability to use digital tools. The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training.

The FutureSchool online education programmes have been designed to fully support the various stages and milestones of the National Curriculum for Knowledge Promotion; certificate for primary and lower secondary education (vitnemål for grunnskolen), certificate of competence (kompetansebevis, certificate for upper secondary education and training (vitnemål for videregående opplæring).

Whatever level your family, you can rest assured that FutureSchool will complement and work hand-in-hand with their current schoolwork.

For those schools that offer the International Baccalaureate or Cambridge International Examinations curricula, these are also available within FutureSchool as part of its standard curriculum library.
