In 2018, KERU established the Knowledge-Rich School Project to trial the Curriculum Design Coherence Model (CDC Model). The Project involves primary and secondary schools in New Zealand. Initial findings show that the CDC Model is a successful design tool for teachers. It is used to design courses within a school year as well as across the years programmes in all school subjects, for example, primary writing programmes, Maths, English, Religious Studies, Music, Science, Social Studies and History. The Project was joined in 2019 by Sheffield Hallam University’s School of Education, led by Dr Richard Pountney, in conjunction with Keele and North Staffordshire Teacher Education KNSTE, led by Diane Swift.
