This webinar series launches an extensive project for the Chartered College, Rethinking Curriculum. The project aims to support and equip teachers and school leaders with the knowledge and skills to identify, plan and implement curriculum development work in a sustainable, context specific and impactful approach. This will mean that all pupils will have access to an expansive, inspiring curriculum that connects them with local communities and enables them to lead healthy, fulfilled lives.
Our webinar series brings together teachers from a range of settings to consider their curriculum and how the work of our experts could develop their work further. Our series of 3 webinars will cover:
- Rethinking Curriculum – Teaching for creativity and creative thinking: why it matters, how to do it and how to evidence progress in the creative thinking skills of your pupils
- Rethinking Curriculum – Finding the balance of a knowledge led curriculum
- Rethinking Curriculum- Making your curriculum choices ambitious
Event attendees will have access not just to the events but to supporting materials and resources in order to start discussions in their settings.
In this last session you will hear from Mary Myatt FCCT – education adviser, writer and speaker.
