Leading and Managing Curriculum Change for Senior Leaders

Curriculum matters. It determines what our young people do for most of the time they are with us in school. Schools and staff have more choices than we often feel; the national curriculum is not the whole curriculum and how we deliver it is our choice.  This new programme is designed to support senior leaders, deputy heads and assistant heads with a responsibility for overall curriculum design and timetabling, curriculum development in Key Stage 3, 4 or 5, assessment, teaching and learning, managing curriculum areas or teams.
