  • amending the core curriculum for the subject of technology (grades IV-VI of primary school): among other things, extending the teaching content related to communication education, also in connection with the emerging new means of personal transport used by pupils; 

  • definition of a core curriculum for the subject of Latin (this language can be taught as a second foreign language from grade VII of primary school); 

  • supplementing the core curriculum of the Polish language for upper secondary and technical schools with games of educational value; 

  • replacing the core curriculum for the subject of entrepreneurship in secondary schools with a core curriculum for the subject of business and management - basic scope, and defining a core curriculum for the subject of business and management - extended scope. 

Amendments apply to the three following regulations

  • on the core curriculum for preschool education and the core curriculum for general education in primary schools, including for pupils with a moderate and severe intellectual disability, and for general education in stage I sectoral vocational schools, general education in special schools preparing for employment, and general education in post-secondary schools, 

  • on the core curriculum for general education in general secondary schools, technical schools and stage II sectoral vocational schools, 

  • on the outline timetables for public schools. 

The amendments were approved by the Minister of Education and Science in February 2023. 

The planned changes will be implemented starting in the 2023/2024 school year.
