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 and delivery 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 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.

  • Schools
  • Colleges
  • Independent learning providers
  • Universities
  • Graduate training programme providers

How does this help with OfSTED planning?

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. This requires education and training providers to develop curriculum plans that set out their curriculum intent, implementation, impact, sequencing and mapping. This can all be done easily with Stedfast.

Does this all take a lot of time?

Not really. Developing an assessment plan is not very time consuming. It involves identifying what you intend to deliver (outcomes) and how you want to measure the impact (findings). Stedfast is collaborative so you can have multiple staff working on an assessment plan and programme review.
