Whose Curriculum is it Anyway?
With the increasing freedoms available to schools, discover new and innovative ways your school can get involved in providing outstanding teaching and learning by attending these series of one day events -‘Whose Curriculum is it Anyway’? This is an excellent opportunity to network with peers, access curriculum resources and address and identify experiential learning for CPD.

Issues will include: how to make the best of the new freedoms in the curriculum; making learning relevant and engaging for young people; using technology effectively; what works in professional development. All this will be within the context of engaging the wider community and developing collaboration and communities of practice.
