New Thinking Required to Develop

A Relevant Curriculum for ALL

‘The sorts of action steps an organisation comes up with, the sorts of knowledge it seeks, the sort of thinking it uses, are directly related to the size of the goal pictured in peoples heads’.

  • John O’Keefe (Group Vice President, Procter & Gamble):

  • Business beyond the box

Let’s admit it. Corporations around the world are reaching the limits of incrementalism. Squeezing another penny out of costs, getting a product to market a few weeks earlier, responding to customers’ enquiries a little bit faster, ratcheting quality up one more notch, capturing another point of market share – those are obsessions of managers today. But pursuing incremental improvements, while rivals reinvent the industry, is like fiddling while Rome burns.

Gary Hamel, Strategy as Revolution

How do we raise achievement?

Aiming for 2% incremental change in results (5 A*-C GCSE) or reinvent the industry?

Fact: of 30 OECD Countries only Mexico, Turkey & Greece have more students dropping out at 16

‘Countries that provide individuals with one additional year in education can boost productivity and raise economic output by 3% - 6% over time’

Redefining ‘entitlement’

  • Defining ‘broad & balanced’ curriculum

  • To include: vocational work-related and enterprise learning for all young people

  • Preparing tomorrow’s workforce for their role in the economy in the 21st Century

Redefining ‘Entitlement’

“Moved from one where all students received the same curriculum to, one where the curriculum is appropriate to the individual”


Understanding the new 14 19 agenda for schools4

Disaffection & poor performance is often linked to:

  • Inability to access the curriculum

  • Low motivation to learn

  • Lack of perceived relevance of subject matter

  • Pressure from ‘one speed’ result driven common curriculum


Understanding the new 14 19 agenda for schools5

White Paper

  • More opportunities & incentives for 16-19 year olds to reach level 2 in English and Maths where not achieved at 16 (GCSE or equivalent)

  • More opportunities to combine academic and vocational learning

  • New ‘Specialised Diplomas combining academic and vocational study covering 14 lines available at level 1,2,3.


Understanding the new 14 19 agenda for schools6

  • ‘No school will be capable of delivering the full entitlement and nor would we want them to. We want individual institutions to play to their strengths, focusing on the things they do well and relying on others to provide the things they do less well. This collaboration between institutions…..will ensure both the full range of provision is available and that standards continue to rise.’

Key considerations:

  • Timetabling – 2 option blocks put back to back to allow 4 period morning block

  • Most vocational courses have school component to provide an integrated course + make them more affordable

  • College Flexible Funding supports vocational programmes


Bungay High School Example by Broadening the 14-19 Curriculum

Key considerations: Staffing

  • School vocational co-ordinator manages link programmes and supports school vocational programmes

  • Inclusion co-ordinator (TA) monitors college programme on a day-to-day basis + sets up and monitors WRL placements

  • In school we employ one member of staff who has a catering background for x3 days per week


Bungay High School Example by Broadening the 14-19 Curriculum

Key considerations:

  • Transport

  • TA student support provided

  • Cultural differences

  • College staffing

  • Tracking progress and achieving certification


Bungay High School Example by Broadening the 14-19 Curriculum

Key considerations:

  • Marketing / student selection

  • Parental notification / parental consent

  • Induction programme

  • Information flow to & from partners

  • Student contract / Code of conduct

  • School / College agreement

  • Emergency procedures

  • Use of Yr 10 work experience
