This half-day course is aimed at school leaders who want to know how they can design a school curriculum that is not only fit for the 21st century but also addresses the many injustices that are currently ingrained within society. With an understanding that any work to eradicate injustice starts with personal responsibility, reflection and individual action, participants will then explore issues and opportunities within the current national curriculum that schools do have the power to address.
This course provides opportunities to discuss your school’s current curriculum ‘diet’, explore a range of resources that could be used to further develop your curriculum offer and have a better understanding of the CPD that would need to be put in place to effect sustainable change.
