Event description One constant in education is change. In our Managing Curriculum Change course, we explore what drives change, the different types of change, where the barriers are to be found and what leaders can do to understand and manage these changes in the context of primary school curriculum development.

People’s reactions to change can be very different. Change that is not asked for, welcomed, or well planned for, can be stressful and unsettling or actively resisted. Other people are so enthusiastic they race ahead with their own agenda. These situations are common in schools and so this course looks at change from the perspective of others and suggests ways to deal with these challenging situations.

We will explore the importance of a clear curriculum vision as well as devoting time to understanding the varying leadership styles and how each can be utilised to bring about effective change.

Managing Curriculum Change is an informative, practical course which is intended to help you think critically about how to plan for and implement changes to your curriculum. As part of this process we will provide time for you to create a ‘curriculum change plan’ during the day which you will be able to use on your return to school. 
Training objectives The course aims include the following:

o   understand the nature and implications of different types of change;
o   identify potential barriers to changing your curriculum, using the ‘dimensions of change’ approach;
o   recognise your preferred leadership style and therefore plan to optimise strengths and mitigate any potential weaknesses as you implement change;
o   understand how people respond to change and identify strategies to deal with potentially challenging situations;
o   create a ‘curriculum change plan’
