THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will bring together key stakeholders with regulators and policymakers to discuss the policy priorities for Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) ahead of the Scottish Government’s expected introduction of an Education Bill in summer 2018.
In light of the Scottish Government’s International Council of Education Advisors (ICEA) report which suggested that the 2017 National Improvement Framework represents a shift away from the ‘whole child’ approach of CfE, and two years on from the OECD’s description of CfE as being at a ‘watershed moment’, delegates will discuss the future direction of CfE and its fit with the key objectives for Scottish education.
Further sessions will look at proposals for the creation of educational regions and a Headteacher’s Charter, put forward within the Scottish Government’s Education Governance Review, and assess how they might impact on the application of CfE in terms of encouraging greater collaboration and leadership within Scotland’s education system.
Delegates will also discuss policy priorities for supporting the existing workforce to improve delivery of CfE, particularly with regard to new funding formulas and enhancing options for professional development amongst classroom teachers, as well as opening up alternative routes into teaching.
