The latest on Curriculum Thinking and Ensuring Consistency Across Departments

Latest Curriculum Thinking – update on Ofsted consultation

  • How do we continue to develop curriculum expertise for 2020 and beyond?
  • Short discussion opportunity, to consider what this means for departments and the college as a whole

Ensuring Consistency across Departments

  • What does consistency mean: what quality of education looks like as an overall objective?
  • Developing a standard to which all subjects can aim: consistency of experience for students in terms of quality
  • Achieving high expectations and sustained excellence

Session 2
Extending the culture of learning for staff and students

  • Examining what high performance looks like for a large college: how to assess that appropriately (methods, approaches, ideas) – case studies of good practice, setting appropriate levels of challenge for your students
  • Discussion on outcomes of Activity at the end of Session 1 and how they link to the case study ideas
  • Effective strategies for teaching and learning (examples), ensuring that students understand their own progress and are able to sustain that through the course (metacognitive ideas) therefore ensuring student retention
  • Developing a culture of staff learning and learning expertise for whole school success and high performance  – ideas and methods tutors can use
