Designing the School Curriculum – Professional Learning Opportunity
In line with the implementation remit on creating time and space for school and setting leaders to think about Curriculum for Wales and to collaborate with others in sharing ideas, Glasgow University's Honorary Research Fellow, George McBride is leading a webinar workshop for ERW schools and settings this term. The focus is curriculum design and progression. George has included a one-hour webinar and a further one-hour workshop, which supports leaders to consider where they are in their understanding of building progression into their vision for CfW.
