Description

About the course

This course will focus on how leaders can support teachers who are teaching outside their main subject area, both in respect of delivering a strong knowledge-rich curriculum and in building their knowledge. If you are a teacher in this position, this course will also offer valuable insight and practical tips to support your teaching.

The course is run by leading experts in history, science, and English from the Inspiration Trust and Ark Schools who will examine key questions such as:
- What do teachers need to know to effectively teach a knowledge-rich curriculum?
- How do we avoid generic approaches when we lack subject specialism?
- To what extent can bought-in curricula and resources support teachers?

Who should attend?

Secondary middle and senior leaders, especially senior school or trust leaders responsible for teaching, learning, curriculum, raising achievement, and school improvement. Secondary teachers working outside their specialism, or at the beginning stages of teaching a knowledge-rich curriculum who would like to improve and develop their own practice.
