1 Day Course INSET

Curriculum for Wales, 2022 is the biggest change we have seen in education in Wales since 1988.  Is your school ready to take on this exciting challenge?

Following on from our commission with Welsh Government, we are pleased to offer this one-day training course to engage with schools in understanding the proposals detailed in the new curriculum framework and what they mean in practical terms.

It will empower both school leaders and teachers in developing a whole school approach to planning for the changes that Curriculum for Wales 2022 brings, and provide a depth of understanding with regards to pedagogy.   The implications of the proposed framework are far reaching and during the day we will support colleagues with the preparations they can begin to make now.

Course participants will:

  • closely examine the component parts of the new curriculum; the Four Purposes, the Areas of Learning and Experience, What Matters, Progression Steps and Achievement Outcomes and how they complement each other
  • make links with the broader outlines within the Welsh Dimension, International Perspective and Wider Skills that learners will engage with
  • explore the pedagogy required to prepare for and implement the new curriculum and compare this to current practice (Review of Cultures of Learning and key messages for pedagogy)
  • focus on how to take the pedagogy of the Foundation Phase into Key Stage 2, and begin to use new terminology for existing phases; PS1, PS2, and PS3. (Links with Rich Tasks, Inquiry Based Learning and Cooperative Learning.)
  • understand the synergy between responsive planning and the shift towards formative assessment as the driver (life without outcomes and levels).
  • consider how the pieces of the puzzle come together to ensure that 21st century pedagogy flourishes
  • identify next steps in their school’s preparation
