First ‘Decoding the Curriculum’ training session goes well
Raj Panchal, a teaching consultant from our curriculum team, delivered the first ‘Decoding the Curriculum’ training session yesterday at one of our schools. Jordans School in Buckinghamshire received this training and, at their request, it was mainly aimed at KS1.
Our specially devised ‘Decoding the Curriculum’ aims to demystify certain strands of the new Computing curriculum (such as algorithms and networking). Our curriculum team (comprising qualified and experienced teachers) designed the training in reaction to the release of the new curriculum and feedback from schools who feel intimidated by some of the new topics it requires.
Raj feels the training went really well at Jordans School yesterday, and the initial feedback from the school seemed to indicate teachers gained a lot from the subjects covered.
