1. Introduction to the IPC
This workshop is perfect for teachers and leaders who are new to the IPC. Join us to find out more about the philosophy, pedagogy and process of the curriculum, and how it can support schools in England to go above and beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum. Find out why nearly 2,000 schools in over 90 countries are using the IPC to achieve Great Learning, Great Teaching and Great Fun!
2. Cracking the Code: ICT & Computing in the IPC
Join our ICT & Computing specialist in this practical workshop, where we will be sharing tips and ideas for embedding ICT & Computing across the curriculum, and supporting you with any challenges that you’ve faced since tackling the additional requirements of the new National Curriculum.
3. Learning the Lingo: Additional Language Learning though the IPC
Schools using the 2016 Olympic-themed IPC units will find that, for the first time ever, we have created learning tasks for additional languages. These are based on the CLIL (content and language integrated learning) approach which some schools are using to help children learn languages, such as French and Spanish, through the medium of the IPC units. Join our specialist languages teacher and writer to find out more about how to integrate language learning further in the curriculum.
4. Planning and Assessing for Learning
When we plan with any curriculum, we are planning for the learning of knowledge, skills and understanding. But these three types of learning are different, and the implications of this are far reaching. How do you plan to ensure practice and transferability of skills? What about the assessment of understanding? Is it the same as knowledge? In this workshop we will dig deeper into the differences between knowledge, skills and understanding and what this means for planning, assessment and improving children’s learning.
5. Introducing the International Early Years Curriculum (AM only)
Join this workshop to find out more about the exciting new developments taking place with the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). Be among some of the first to find out about the philosophy, pedagogy and process of the new curriculum, and how this will build on existing EY practice in your school.
6. The Bottom Line Nine: Using the IPC Self-Review for whole school improvement (PM only)
This workshop is aimed at curriculum and school leaders, and will guide you through the IPC Self-Review process, which helps schools to improve learning in the nine key areas of the curriculum. Learn how this process can engage all staff in action planning, help schools feel more confident about preparing for Ofsted, and learn more about how UK schools have used the Self-Review to achieve IPC accreditation.
