Capita’s 2nd National Conference on Curriculum Reform – Friday 30th November 2012 – Central London
Published by Susannah Ellis for Capita Conferences in Education
Capita’s 2nd Curriculum Reform Conference comes at a crucial time with the impending National Curriculum overhaul triggering radical changes to curriculum content and the introduction of new Programmes of Study for core subjects.
The reforms are designed to deliver greater school accountability, with increasing emphasis on extending curriculum freedom, creativity and flexibility; strengthening leadership and raising standards in maths, science and English. Further to the Expert Panel's National Curriculum Review and the Government’s response in the summer, now more than ever, clarification is needed on the curriculum for 2014.
Leading Practitioners share knowledge on:
• Bridging the transition between primary and secondary education
• Raising standards of literacy across primary and secondary schools
• Creatively planning and delivering curriculum content
• Shaping the curriculum to aid the achievement of pupils with special educational needs (SEN)
• Facilitating professional development for teaching staff
This must attend event focuses on these key themes, providing a policy update from the Department for Education as well as offering practical case studies from schools already delivering in these vital areas.
