What do previous attendees say about these courses?

  • “Aimed skilfully at leaders of all experiences and provided lots of opportunities to discuss, not just the operational aspect of timetables, but bigger issues affecting schools that can be supported through a quality curriculum and timetable. Chris is patient, thorough and an expert in his field, with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I would recommend this to any leader wanting to develop and improve their curriculum provision.”
  • “I was really pleased with this course. It had a balance of leadership principles and practical application.”
  • “Gave me a detailed overview of curriculum and the key principles related to curriculum design.”
  • “This training will help to inform budget planning.”
  • “Relevant, clear and structured. Enabled us to reflect on current situation.”
  • “Before undertaking the training I had no awareness of the ICFP model and its approaches to curriculum enhancement and design. It really challenged my thinking and has brought a new dimension to our strategic decision-making which will start with our planning for the next academic year.”
  • “Helped me to think differently about how we maximise use of all our resources and to reflect on the narrative which underpins our curriculum design. I really enjoyed the input and the opportunity to reflect.”
  • “Truly insightful.”
 

We hope to see you or your colleagues on one of our courses very soon.

Kind regards

Chris and the SMARTcurriculum®team
