The curriculum planning module is designed for all education and training providers. It provides easy to use tools to develop, map and sequence curriculum plans.
As part of the deep dive processes used to determine the grade for Quality of Education, Ofsted will want to see that the content, sequencing and progression in the subject is appropriate and secured and whether it demands enough of learners.
I am new to curriculum planning software, how does this help?
Curriculum planning has typically been a complex and time-consuming process. Curriculum planning software, such as Stedfast, is designed to streamline curriculum planning activities.
It is easy to create a curriculum plan with templates, and with all resources centralised, teachers and trainers can develop curriculum activities, align them with outcomes and add teaching resources.
Curriculum planning software should do several things. It should get rid of paperwork, spreadsheets and word documents. It should be collaborative. It must allow organisations to set out the activities that learners will complete and align these with the course outcomes. It should enable you to articulate how your curriculum is sequenced and provide a curriculum gap analysis.
Who can use curriculum plans?
Any organisation that delivers knowledge and skills programmes can use the curriculum module.
- Independent learning providers
- Graduate training programme providers
What is in a curriculum plan?
The curriculum planning module is designed to focus on curriculum implementation. After creating the assessment plan for a programme, the next step is to consider the curriculum implementation. Organisations can create templates for curriculum activities that set out the required learning, practice and assessment.
In each curriculum plan, users can also easily manage curriculum sequencing and curriculum mapping.
Curriculum sequencing can be set for weeks, months, terms or years.
How does this help with OfSTED planning?
Organisations that are subject to inspections by OfSTED will need to work towards the Quality of Education judgement which is set out in the Education Inspection Framework. This requires education and training providers to develop curriculum plans that set out their curriculum intent, implementation, impact, sequencing and mapping. This can all be done easily with Stedfast.
Does this take a lot of time?
No. Developing a curriculum plan is easy and can be shared with fellow teachers and trainers. Users can develop their own curriculum activity templates, which can be as simple or detailed as they want.
Can Stedfast help with 20% Off the Job training?
Organisations delivering apprenticeships must plan and demonstrate how learners will cover 20% off-the-job learning. This can be done in Stedfast as each curriculum activity can add the expected hours, and then users can track an overall planning total.
