About this course

Course description:

How can we effectively design, develop, implement and embed a rich and varied curriculum that engages and challenges all of your pupils?

The three key measures of an effective curriculum, according to Ofsted, are Intent, Implementation and Impact. This one-day CPD course explores what is meant by these measures and how to design and implement an effective curriculum around them in line with the principles of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework.

By attending this course, you will:

• Understand how to design, develop and implement an effective curriculum that is broad and balanced.
• Discover how other schools have successfully innovated in curriculum design to benefit teaching and learning.
• Learn what is meant by “Intent”, “Implementation” and “Impact”, and how these criteria can help your school think about and develop its curriculum.

In addition, we will look at case studies of schools that have successfully innovated in their curriculum design - not just for inspection purposes, but for the benefits of their pupils.

Finally, we will support you in setting out your vision, Intent, Implementation strategies, and Impact measures to take back to your school and start renewing your curriculum offer.
