Best outline of national curriculum changes?

I have an interview soon for a position as a primary TA in a British curriculum international school. I'm a qualified secondary teacher but have been a SAHM for some time now.

Suspect I might be asked some curriculum based questions given my background - does anybody have links to some decent articles on the subject for some background reading please?

I doubt you'll get many people saying anything is 'best' about the changes! I think if you look on union websites you'll have some ideas about the changes and how people are planning to respond to them. I doubt, as a TA, you'd be expected to know lots surely?

I appreciate there is, erm, a less than positive feeling towards the curriculum changes - I just wanted to read up on the changes in preparation!

And yes, prospective TAs won't necessarily get asked these questions but as an already "on the ground" British qualified teacher in a country where they struggle to recruit and retention is even worse there is a chance the interview may take a different turn.

Yes. Look at the union websites. They're not militant summaries - they're genuine summaries of the changes. The biggest, imo, is assessment in primary schools.
