[en] Physical education (PE) in Luxembourg is currently characterized by two major developments: the implementation of a new competence-oriented curriculum in PE and the implementation of several measures in the context of a national action plan to promote the physical activity of Luxembourgish children and youth. Since September 2009, a new curriculum based on the German concept of Educating Sports lessons has been applied in secondary schools in Luxembourg. This core curriculum provides expected minimal competencies in six competence areas, which can be achieved in seven movement fields. Further important characteristics of the new curriculum are the general comprehensive nature of the described competencies and the subject-related competence model based on PE activities. In the context of a national action plan to promote the physical activity of children and youth in Luxembourg, the Ministry of Education started to develop and implement the concept of basic motor qualifications. Thus, consolidated findings on the status of these qualifications among students aged 8 to 12 can be realized, and students with special needs in motor qualifications can be identified. A specific support plan to help these students improve their qualifications will be developed in accordance to the results.
