Upcoming Courses

Using the Ofsted research review: science to move your curriculum towards excellence

Following the publication of the Ofsted Research Review: science in 2021, this course is designed to enable participants, from any phase, to review their curriculum against the key messages. The course will highlight the key findings and provide a facilitated forum for sharing ideas with peers. Participants will work together, evaluating their curriculum against Ofsted’s findings and planning next steps in the development of their curriculum. Facilitator support will be available to begin any re-design process following this evaluation.
