Recently Qualified Teacher (RQT) twilight programme 2019-2020: taking on a new curriculum leadership role

Course dates: 4 x Wednesday twilights – 4.15pm – 5.45pm across the year

Course venue: Blaise Primary School and Nursery

£29 per session, £95 for all 4

Target Audience: Early Career Teachers – those in primary schools who have recently completed their NQT induction year and teachers who are in their second or third year post-NQT

Facilitator: Bristol SLE team / school leaders Following the successful NQT programme, the teaching school team are again offering on-going support to teachers moving into their second or third year, which presents new challenges. There is often less non-contact time, greater demands and curriculum leadership to take on – particularly in response to Ofsted’s new requirements and their ‘deep diving’ into the foundation subjects. The RQT programme aims to bring teachers together to develop their practice and career as well as provide a support network across the city. The sessions will all be run as four twilights across the year and will focus particularly on curriculum leadership.

In recent years the DfE use the term ‘subject leaders’ as the preferred generic term which captures the essential leadership aspect of their work and acknowledges their importance in securing high standards of achievement within a given subject. In response to new Ofsted requirements, this has now been changed to curriculum leaders.

We will be looking in more depth at the new DfE Early Career Framework (ECF) and drawing upon their suggestions for support and guidance for teachers moving into their second and subsequent years.

This programme is designed to:

  • support the role of curriculum leaders through defining key elements to successful practice;
  • provide a useful starting point for teachers embarking on their first step in leadership;
  • support staff who are taking on a new curriculum leader role
  • provide useful models of self-evaluation.

This programme will cover:

  • What makes effective curriculum leadership? The role of the curriculum leader.
  • Self Evaluation (Monitoring, Lesson Observation, Work Sampling)
  • Curriculum Action / Raising attainment plans
  • Strategic direction and development of the curriculum area
  • Teaching and learning
  • Leading and managing staff – holding others to account and managing difficult conversations.
  • Efficient and effective deployment of staff and resources

The sessions have been subsidised by the teaching school again this year.
