Getting to grips with curriculum changes

Teachers from across Birmingham gathered at Ark Boulton Academy on Thursday 4th February for a free event - "Getting to grips with curriculum changes in English, maths and science".

Navigating changes to the curriculum is a key part of every teacher’s role, but for many these developments can be difficult to navigate and even more difficult to introduce in the classroom. These free practical workshops brought together exam board experts and English, maths and science subject leads – to discuss the changes to the curriculum for 2016 -  giving teachers the opportunity to improve their understanding of their subject’s curriculum, quiz the experts and develop practical ways of implementing them.
