Early Careers Network (Curriculum planning and sequencing)

Our Early Careers Network sessions aim to support Early Careers teachers and new to citizenship teachers. The sessions align to the Early Career Framework and set out to support with challenging areas.

This ECT Network session will focus on Citizenship curriculum planning and sequencing 

This session is designed for ITT Citizenship trainees, ECT in Citizenship and those new to Citizenship as a subject. It would also benefit Heads of department or Citizenship co-ordinators who have not developed a Citizenship curriculum before.

The session will be led by Daryl Henson one of our ACT Ambasadors who has recently completed his middle leaders qualification project based on curriculum planning.

This event will support the Early Career Framework in the following areas:

Ensuring pupils have relevant domain-specific knowledge, especially when being asked to think critically within a subject. Interleaving concrete and abstract examples, slowly withdrawing concrete examples and drawing attention to the underlying structure of problems.

This session will also support the Core Content framework Section 3: Subject and Curriculum (Demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge) by:

  • Observing how expert colleagues ensure pupils’ thinking is focused on key ideas within the subject and deconstructing this approach.
  • Discussing and analysing with expert colleagues the rationale for curriculum choices, the process for arriving at current curriculum choices and how the school’s curriculum materials inform lesson preparation
  • Being aware of common misconceptions and discussing with expert colleagues how to help pupils master important concepts.
  • Discussing and analysing with expert colleagues how to revisit the big ideas of the subject over time and teach key concepts through a range of examples.
