Curriculum construction, design and implementation is a continuous process influenced by curriculum evaluation which enables on-going improvements to curriculum design and application. It relies on relationships and organization and these features capture the human element of the process recognising it is an organizational and decision-making process that ultimately informs the development process.

Curriculum design and implementation is a change process and change is hard to conceive and harder to implement. It requires the support and leadership within schools from subject leaders, vice-principles and principles and at higher levels. The belief and attitudes of supervisors to support changes and curriculum reform is essential and as is the channeling of support to teachers. Interrelated to the support teachers need is in-service professional development programs and (possibly) additional resources are required to ensure the curriculum implementation process is successful.
