Secondary DCF Coordinator Workshop 3
Tue 23 May 2017, 08:45 – 12:00 BST
Planning for Improvement
This workshop will equip DCF Coordinators in secondary schools with a number of strategies to plan the way forward for incorporating the DCF into the different departments’ schemes of work. Based on the assumption that each school will highlight the DCF as an important element of next year’s School Development Plan this workshop will help the DCF Coordinator to plan ahead. It will focus on building leadership skills concentrating on ways of working together with the Senior Management Team as well as other Heads of Departments.
The workshop will raise awareness of the responsibilities attached to the role of DCF Coordinator, enthusing staff, mapping the DCF across the curriculum, setting departmental targets, monitoring the use of the DCF and also monitoring the impact of these measures on the learner’s experience. Attendees will leave with practical ideas how to approach these responsibilities so that they are able to become accountable for them.
OneNote Staff Notebook will be explored to facilitate the gathering of evidence from different departments in an electronic portfolio.
Sharing good practice between the schools represented at the workshop will be actively encouraged and attendees are asked to bring examples of their work with various departments as exemplars of how to approach the different strands of the DCF.
