The Year of the Curriculum - unit 5 launched
Unit 5: This is the first of two units within the ‘Measuring what we value: knowledge, skills, understanding and personal development’ module.
The NUT invites you to be part of the 'Year of the Curriculum', a project with the Curriculum Foundation which brings NUT members advice, support and CPD. Eight modules will help schools get ready for the new curriculum requirements. Whatever school you teach in, use these modules and CPD events to learn about the theory behind curriculum planning and how to put that into practice'
The NUT and the Curriculum Foundation continue to work together this term to bring you support and practical advice about curriculum design. You can click below to view the modules released this term. Teachers have told us that the Year of Curriculum programme is helping them get ready. Some of the typical comments from teachers who have begun to use the CPD modules include:
“Informative, made you think, gave you courage and confidence to be creative with the curriculum”
“Reassuring and liberating!”
“Inspirational – I have come away with a ‘can-do’ attitude and hope for our children”
Further Year of the Curriculum events will be planned for the autumn term, because of the demand at the events this term. We will send you a further email with the dates soon.
If you have questions, or examples of how your schools is using the Year of the Curriculum approach, please email us at YOC@nut.org.uk.
