Benefits for you

Drive curriculum change
You will develop the skills and knowledge to confidently change the curriculum in your school. We will help you to work with your senior leadership team to create a ‘vision of intent’ for your school-wide curriculum and use this to support middle leaders in their subject areas. We will provide you with support to develop your curriculum intent, and its implementation, to deliver meaningful impact.

Improve pupil outcomes
This training will help you develop a clear cross-subject curriculum framework for your school. It will help you provide your pupils, particularly the most disadvantaged, with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

Leverage the expertise of subject leaders
We will help you to train up your subject leaders, leveraging their expertise so they develop high quality curricula for each subject area.

Access industry-leading resources
You will learn from the latest research and have access to top-quality examples and models across subjects and stages. These include school-wide vision statements, progression maps, long-term plans and teacher educator materials.

Gain peer-to-peer support
