Course Details

Becoming a subject leader for the first time can be a daunting prospect. This course will offer support and inspiration to teachers who are new to taking on whole-school responsibility, or want additional support to help them perform their existing role well. Subject leaders will be guided through their main responsibilities and how to effectively fulfil their role, ensuring that provision in their subject is exceptional. There will be an opportunity to consider curriculum intent, implementation and impact in reference to the quality of education judgment in the Ofsted inspection framework as well as how to prepare for a deep dive. In addition, we will explore how to use monitoring processes to accurately evaluate provision to in turn support colleagues with their practice and implement effective change.

What it will include:

  • Action planning
  • Curriculum planning and pedagogy
  • Overview of EYFS curriculum links
  • Subject monitoring and evaluation
  • Staff training and support
  • Cultural capital and enrichment opportunities
  • Preparation for an Ofsted subject deep dive
  • Real life case studies from subject leaders on how they effectively implemented whole school change

What you can take home:

  • Subject action plan template
  • Example monitoring proformas (e.g. book looks, observation feedback, pupil voice)
  • Example Ofsted subject interview questions
