Education & Skills Partnership Continuous Professional Development Network

Target audience:

Senior Leaders, Governors and specific teaching staff from Partner Organisations - 14-19 education and training providers and stakeholders serving the East Riding.

Outline of event:

Are your curriculum and careers programmes relevant to the local area and effectively preparing young people to succeed in the world of work?
The CBI say that young people lack the skills and qualities that matter in the world of work, however, the government emphasis on curriculum, examinations and performance tables presents a significant challenge to education and training institutions striving to improve and develop the employability skills of their young people. Young people also need careers education which is embedded into and fits alongside the curriculum and is informed by labour market information.  

This is the theme for the first Education and Skills Partnership CPD session for this academic year. Enhancing the Relevance of the Curriculum to the World of Work

The session will take place on Wednesday 18 October at IT@Spectrum, The View, Bridgehead Business Park, Hessle HU13 0GD starting at 8.45am and finishing at 1.20pm with a networking lunch to follow.

This half day session will provide delegates with an opportunity to explore with businesses effective ways of engaging with each other to enhance the relevance of the curriculum, striving to not only improve the quality of careers education, but also leading to improved attainment.
The intention is to initially focus on English, Maths and Science, however the key principles will encourage a cross curricula ‘whole school’ approach.

Learning and Teaching Outcomes:

The key objectives of the session are:
1) To raise awareness of the opportunities and benefits of employer engagement in the curriculum.
2) To share good practice.
3) To provide information about the range of projects and support available.
4) To enthuse and inspire delegates to commit to enhancing their employer engagement activities as part of their curriculum development and overall careers strategy.
5) To identify opportunities for further collaboration and networking

We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes
