What is this course about?
The curriculum changes, statutory for all state schools from 1st September 2014 and a reference point for Free Schools and Academies are transformational. This goes beyond incremental tweaks to our long medium or short term planning and focuses on the principles of effective curriculum design that can lead to higher standards. In particular the opportunities offered to teachers in designing a curriculum for all learners that moves away from an isolated activity led approach to an integrated purposeful approach are explored.
What does this course cover?
The course will reference the new National Curriculum 2014 physical education programme of study and allow you to apply the principles of effective curriculum design using our unique card system. You will leave with a curriculum architecture and approach to planning that promotes deep and engaging learning for all pupils. This will also include the writing of a unit of work.
Who is it suitable for?
This qualification is suitable for any physical education teacher, teaching assistant, coach, consultant, trainer or Ofsted inspector who is working in or with primary or secondary schools to raise the standard of physical education and school sport for children and young people and who is responsible for or who contributes to curriculum planning.
What is the duration of the course?
The course is one full day from 9am for registration and refreshments for a 9.30am start through to 4pm.
How is it assessed?
Your needs are assessed throughout the day and responded to. There is no formal assessment required on your part. You will be provided with a colour bound course booklet and a 2GB memory stick with the PowerPoint used and numerous documents providing background reading.
How can I be confident of quality?
Andrew Frapwell has been involved in developing curriculum practices nationally and internationally – most recently the physical education curriculum in Kosovo. He was part of a stakeholder group contributing ideas to shaping the National Curriculum Programme of Study for PE 2014. You will engage in interactive activities to encourage deep learning.
