Revitalising Your English Curriculum: Designing a Full and Rich, Fit-For-Purpose English Curriculum

Ofsted’s new criteria for institutional assessment has prompted many schools to look again at what content they offer. With English contributing the highest tariff to Progress 8 and Attainment 8, the quality, breadth and depth of the English Curriculum is of particular concern. Come along to find out what curriculum delivers an enriching and empowering experience for students and effectively prepares them for their exams.

Join Westminster Briefing and The National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE) for an intensive, interactive and practical day of training to help teachers revitalise the English Curriculum for Key Stages 3 and 4. You will learn how to critically review your own English curriculums and what resources are used to inspire students, re-energise tutors and help secure the best learning outcomes. 

Course Leader:

  • Paul Clayton, Director, The National Association for the Teaching of English

Key Topics to be covered:

  • Policy Context: Ofsted and Educational Reform 
  • The National Curriculum for English: recurring themes and challenges
  • Where are we now? A sample of current models
  • Reviewing the National Curriculum for English 
  • Designing the English Curriculum: reading, writing, speaking and listening
  • Pedagogy and the curriculum: teaching and learning in your setting


Delegates will be part of a small group and receive collective and individual tuition throughout the day. This is a practical training course that will help revitalise your English Curriculum.
