Code: ENG/19/178/P Curriculum in Motion: Full Programme

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.

Generic session outline:
Input 1: guest speaker – selected from a school or organisation that has engaged deeply in curriculum considerations.
Reflection time: an opportunity for leaders to discuss the content of the input session; time for questions or working with colleagues to consider actions to take back to settings.
Input 2: Hertfordshire schools’ showcase – input from a Hertfordshire Headteacher, or leader, working in a school that has been noted for its investment in curriculum considerations.

The following guest speakers have been confirmed: Ed Vainker, co-founder and executive principal of Reach Academy Feltham; Christine Counsell, who sits on Ofsted's curriculum advisory panel and was formerly director of education at Inspiration Trust; Andrew Percival, deputy headteacher and curriculum lead at Stanley Road Primary in Oldham - Andrew has co-written and delivered a well-regarded training offer with Clare Sealy, ‘Developing a Curriculum for Long-Term Learning’.

Places at these sessions are limited. Please book your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment (maximum 2 delegates per school).
Leaders can choose to sign up for all five sessions in advance, or alternatively, sessions can be booked individually. Individual sessions will be available to book in due course – please email training@hertsforlearning.co.uk if you are interested in booking individual sessions.
