New to a Religion and Worldviews approach? Watch this short animation.

This suite of resources is the outcome of a three-year project on behalf of the RE Council.  Primarily aimed at curriculum writers, it consists of a handbook, including a toolkit, three exemplar frameworks, and their accompanying resources.
The project has been carried out by RE Today, three framework teams, and the RE Council.  It has been supported by Templeton World Charitable Foundation and Westhill Endowment Trust.
