This professional learning opportunity is for lead practitioners who are interested in taking forward the systematic progression and recording of skills that learners develop throughout their educational journey.

It provides you with the necessary theory and information on current developments, including the wider context of DYW and curriculum innovation, in order to support you to take forward the implementation in your own educational setting.

What is expected of participants?

In order to ensure maximum impact participants are expected to prioritise all sessions over the course of the year. The course is interactive in nature and therefore requires participants to actively participate throughout the course. Any virtual participation requires you to access digital equipment with a camera and microphone as well as google tools such as Jamboard. It is also expected that participants will take forward aspects of development work in their own time and share this at the ‘Recall/Sharing of learning’ session.

This CPD will be delivered by: Kirsty Campbell (Workstream Lead, Northern Alliance), Heather Grant (Workstream Lead, Northern Alliance), Tom Harley (Skills Development Scotland) and Klaus Mayer (Education Scotland).

Online Delivery Method: Microsoft Teams, please note joining instructions will be sent out 2 days before each session.
