For teachers, curricula form the basis for their independent, responsible teaching and educational work. It is teachers’ duty to help individual pupils achieve the objectives specified in the curriculum through suitable lesson planning and design. The curricula provide pupils and legal guardians with guidance on the knowledge and skills that pupils should have at their disposal at the end of a school year. Furthermore, they provide a point of reference for development of teaching materials and for teachers’ continuing education and training.
