What are effective processes for curriculum construction, debate and renewal?
In reality, how is the curriculum used as a progression model?
Which factors influence the inclusion or omission of content within different curriculum models?
Which factors influence the order of content across different curriculum disciplines within the curriculum?
Following the success of the Primary Curriculum Symposium, Herts for Learning are delighted to launch a follow-up CPD offer: Curriculum in Motion. This series of half-day CPD sessions will allow leaders to continue the conversations begun during the Curriculum Symposium and to re-focus on key curriculum questions, such as those listed above. For those leaders who did not attend the Curriculum Symposium, the sessions will provide an excellent opportunity to engage in the topical debates surrounding curriculum design and implementation.
The five Curriculum in Motion sessions, which will be spread across the academic year 2019/20, will feature guest speakers, all of whom have considerable experience of forming and shaping bespoke curriculums, designed to meet the needs of learners within their diverse settings. Acting on the feedback from the Curriculum Symposium, each session will feature a speaker who is able to give practical insights into the processes, challenges and considerations associated with visioning and implementing a primary curriculum. In addition, the sessions will incorporate time and space to allow for leaders to consider, debate and respond to the content being presented.
Each session will also include input from a Hertfordshire headteacher, or leader, working in a school that has been noted for its investment in curriculum considerations.
Leaders can choose to sign up for all five sessions in advance, or alternatively, sessions can be booked individually. Leaders who book all five sessions in advance will receive a 15% discount on the full price. Individual sessions will cost £93. The discounted price for all five sessions is £395.- click here to book the full session package
