11.20 Niki Kaiser Building a meaningful curriculum. "This masterclass is about how we can work with our pupils to ensure what they learn is retained, understood and meaningful. I’m a Science teacher, so my ideas will be rooted in my own practice, but will be relevant to all subjects in some way."

1.30 Jeffrey Boakye The design principles that underpin curriculum planning. What needs to be flexible, what needs to be fixed, and the role of core values. The session will also look at how a curriculum sits in conversation with wider social contexts, in tension with or adapting to societal values.
