Why is this course relevant and of interest?

For many years, Ofsted has prioritised outcomes over the substance of education. As a result, many schools have had little time to develop a robust and well-thought-out, systematic personal development curriculum. Now that this will be a crucial judgement in inspection, separate from the judgement on welfare and behaviour, it is essential that schools think about the intent, implementation and impact of their personal development curriculum.

Advance your understanding of:

  • The meaning, nature and scope of personal development, to include the core themes of:
    • What is a healthy lifestyle? (Physical and Mental well-being)
    • What is a healthy relationship?
  • How to become a responsible, respectful and active citizen.
    • Developing pupils’ character.
    • Keeping safe.
    • Developing a context and age appropriate policy for SRE.
  • How to develop a clear, research-based intent for your personal development curriculum.
  • How extra-curricular opportunities support this intent.
  • How to create curriculum expectations for personal development.
  • How to evaluate the substance and quality of the experiences you provide for pupils.
  • How to implement a well-structured personal development curriculum.

Take away:

  • Insight into how to create a curriculum of real substance that is research-based.
  • A framework for evaluating your personal development curriculum.
  • A suggested policy framework for Relationships Education.
