 You might want to look at some of the work by Klaus Miesenberger and his
team at the University of Linz. They created some curriculum projects that
were intended to be used throughout Europe.

See http://www.dfaei.org/curricula.html The project ended in 2009, so the
materials and objectives would need to be updated, but it can at least
serve as a model for how a curriculum could be achieved.
