Governor Opportunity : explore your school’s curriculum offer in light of current Ofsted recommendations
19 Nov
Ambitious Curriculum and Cultural Capital for all Outline This course will provide governors with the opportunity to explore their own school’s curriculum offer in the light of current Ofsted recommendations Aimed at: All governors, especially those leading or with a focus on the curriculum. Leaders, managers and those responsible for governance have a duty to ensure that the education provided by the school has a positive impact on all its pupils. There is also an expectation that school leaders adopt or construct a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly those at a disadvantage, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Description This course will provide governors with the opportunity to explore their own school’s curriculum offer in the light of current Ofsted recommendations and help them identify and recognise positive examples of impact when visiting their schools or talking with school leaders. Specifically, the course covers: an exploration of Cultural Capital; how an ambitious curriculum can lead to both improved standards and an enhanced impact on children’s and young people’s life chances, including their readiness for the next stage in their education, training or employment; what Ofsted expects; key questions and lines of enquiry to explore with the school leadership team and how knowledge gleaned from monitoring activities can influence the school’s own self-evaluation. Booking Information This training costs £120 per delegate for governors of schools who subscribe to School & Governor Support, and £150 for those who don't. Secure your place here:
