Curriculum design – CPD Pack

1 min read
Our CPD packs are designed to support members in further exploring the themes raised in each issue of ‘Impact’. CPD packs provide guidance and resources to help facilitate staff CPD based on key articles from each issue. This pack is related to the following articles:
The packs are designed to be flexible so they can be used and adapted to deliver a one off session or a longer series of CPD opportunities. The facilitator notes contain suggestions for how to shorten or extend activities depending on whether you wish to provide a brief snapshot of the research or explore the concepts over a longer time period. We recognise that preparing and resourcing high quality CPD in schools and colleges is both time consuming and expensive, and we hope that these CPD packs will help reduce teachers’ and school leaders’ workload as well as providing a supportive framework enabling all school members to facilitate CPD confidently.

The Pack

The CPD pack related to this article enables teachers to become more familiar with the definitions of, and differences between a ‘knowledge-rich’ curriculum and a ‘skills-based’ curriculum. There will be an opportunity, in particular, to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each approach and identify the application to school curriculum and lesson planning.

This pack contains the following –
