Your current scheme of learning

Whether you are a head of department, aspiring head or teacher who wants to improve your scheme of learning, you will probably not be starting from scratch. Looking at what you have now will help you identify how the approaches we will explore can be applied to your school and department context.

We would like you to reflect on what your scheme of learning looks like currently, in the form of ‘two stars and a wish’.

What do you currently like in your scheme of learning? What bits work well for you and your department?

What is less successful? What is there that you might change? How well does it support teachers?

Reviewing your current scheme of learning

In the comments below, describe:

  • Two features of your current scheme of learning that work well (the ‘two stars’).
  • One feature that really needs improving or is missing completely (the ‘wish’).

Feel free to add a little extra detail if it helps, so if there is something special (or possibly something really challenging!) that you have in your current schemes of learning, please share with us.
