We have been working on an update to the organisational curriculum view so that all subjects or apprenticeship programmes can be seen in a single report. Users are now able to filter the view by year or level and then see the curriculum activities based on the length of the programme.
Organisation Curriculum View
In this example, the organisation has created curriculum implementation plans for year 10 subjects over a 39 week year. Using the filters, the user can see each on the topics being taught on a week by week basis. They can also click on each of the topics and the learning, practice and assessment activities will be displayed.
One of the key requirements in the Education Inspection Framework is that organisations plan their curriculum sequencing. Withing curriculum intent Ofsted will want to see that
the provider’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment
It is really easy to plan curriculum sequencing in Stedfast. Users simply add the activity based on the selected time length which can be weeks, months, terms or years. This means that if you plan activities on a monthly basis then the sequencing will be displayed by month.
In this example, we have selected the sequencing time on weekly activities for a 39-week academic year. Each of the activities is mapped to the associated assessment plan so that users can conduct a curriculum gap analysis.
Cross Curriculum Mapping
We have also updated the cross-curriculum mapping reports. This is a really useful feature to show how subjects are mapped to outcomes such as SMSC. Likewise, for apprenticeship providers, the report will show how apprenticeship standards are mapped to outcomes such as extending maths and English, Prevent and Safeguarding.
Stedfast is a multi-module application designed to support curriculum planning and quality assurance. It offers features such as assessment plans, staff performance management and CPD recording and monitoring If you would like to see how Stedfast can support your organisation the please book an online demo through our contact page.
