  • website, 20130213

Nature, Life and Science (NLT) is a new, integrated science subject, which is introduced in secondary education in the Netherlands on 1st August 2007.

The general aims of NLT are the following: to make the natural sciences and technology more attractive and to create coherence in the different subjects of the sciences. It is going to be an optional subject within the science stream of upper secondary education, to be completed with a school examination. The Minister of Education, Culture and Science has commissioned the Steering Committee to develop a well-tested national examination programme.

To start with, the Steering Committee formulated a vision that forms the basis for the examination programme. The Steering Committee develops the subject content, together with secondary and tertiary education and based on a modular structure. The Steering Committee also takes care of the implementation of the subject including assessment, evaluation and adaptation of the draft curriculum during the first few years after the introduction. The duration of the project is five years, from 2006 to 2010. The project has resulted in an advice of the Steering Committee to the Minister of Education, Culture and Science concerning the adaptation of the national examination programme for NLT.
