Curriculum CPD – Developing a Rich and Engaging Design & Technology Curriculum

Building on our session last year, Leanne Mee will be returning to lead 2 sessions for us focused on developing a rich and engaging Design and Technology curriculum.

SESSION 1 – WEBINAR (Thursday 12th November 2020):

During the first online session Leanne will focus on:

  • Recap bigger picture: the what, why and how of the D&T Curriculum – requirements, principles and constraints.
  • News & updates
  • Planning your perfect D&T curriculum: short, medium, long term. Making connections across the wider curriculum. Amending your provision to address the constraints following on from COVID 19.
  • Resources to support your D&T curriculum: Leanne will share resources and ideas from a range of different organisations and sources.
  • Agreeing focus of face to face session: Leanne will canvas views in order to ensure the practical follow-up session is focused on meeting you needs.

SESSION 2 – FACE TO FACE (Tuesday 18th May 2021):

The half day, face to face session will be very much focused on practical skills and ideas. Leanne has a wealth of different workshop options on offer covering all areas of the D&T curriculum and we will be able to build a bespoke programme based on the needs of the group, as identified during the online session.

Please note this course is being run over 2 sessions – 1 webinar and 1 face to face. Delegates are expected to ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS. See on the next tab for details…
