CURRICULUM PLANS

Users can easily create any type of curriculum plan. They can be simple plans that give an overarching indication of what will be delivered or detailed activity plans which align to learning outcomes set out in assessment plans and have all of the associated learning material attached.

The curriculum planning module can be used by schools, colleges apprenticeship training providers, universities or businesses delivering graduate or employee training schemes.

CURRICULUM ACTIVITIES

Users are able to add all of the activities that make up the programme and demonstrate curriculum intent and implementation. Activities can contain Learning, Practice and / or Assessment and are aligned to outcomes. Users can record the hours for each activity and attach activity content.

Curriculum activities can be templated which allows organisations to add their own details such as resources, how the activity builds on previous learning, differentiation etc.

CURRICULUM SEQUENCE

Stedfast supports organisations with the curriculum sequencing. Curriculum plans can be set up to record activities on a weekly or monthly basis. Users then add activities with a start and end date.

Using the curriculum sequence feature, organisations can easily view and confirm when activities will take place during the curriculum delivery.

Curriculum activities can be moved to any order simply by dragging and dropping.

CURRICULUM MAPPING

The curriculum mapping tools allow users to get an holistic view of the programme and ensure that all outcomes are covered by one or many curriculum activities.

When creating curriculum plans, users select the programme outcomes and then for each activity they are able to select the outcomes that will be covered.

Using the curriculum mapping tool they can see which activities cover each of outcomes. They can also quickly see the learning, practice and assessment activities by clicking on the L,P & A icons.

20% OFF THE JOB LEARNING

  • Activity Hours – Easily show the number of Off the Job learning for each curriculum plan activity
  • Activity Dashboard – Easily view the number of Off the Job learning hours allocated to each apprenticeship programme

How does this help with OfSTED planning?

Curriculum plans are used to plan the delivery of your programmes and support curriculum implementation. Organisations that are subject to inspections by OfSTED will need to work towards the Quality of Education judgement which is set out in the Education Inspection Framework.

Using the curriculum planning module, education and training providers are able to set out curriculum activities, align the with the assessment plan outcomes and create templates that set out learning, practice and assessment activities.

Can we sequence our curriculum plan?

The curriculum plan module lets education and training providers sequence their curriculum plan. They can identify when activities are due to take place. There is a visual report that shows all activities set to be delivered.

We would like to demonstrate curriculum mapping?

The curriculum plan module has a built in curriculum mapping feature that shows users which outcomes are mapped to which activities. They can also click on the learning, practice and assessment icons to see the underlying information.

Can we share our curriculum plans?

It is really helpful to be able to share curriculum plans with learners, parents, employers and other stakeholders. Users can easily share their curriculum plans in websites and learning management systems. We have added a couple of examples below. Click on the L,P & A to see the detail.
