#piolearner- developing skills AND attributes


Click the image above for presentation

You can read more about the T shaped learner here.

We wanted to begin the process of staff thinking more explicitly about the skills and attributes students would need in order to be successful.

We split all staff up into 20 groups with two facilitators in each group for a morning activity. Most of our facilitators had not done the role before. Each group had the task of creatively presenting 6 attributes that make an effective learner and how they would develop these attributes. They were given these suggestions for the presentation of their ideas. The Students’ Union will be deciding on the winning group.

Afternoon Activity

Business Support staff returned into teams for arranged activities with their managers.

Curriculum Teams

Each department considered how they might transform their curriculum, whilst we have more learners for less funding, to fit the following requirements:

You can explore general curriculum transformation ideas here


11 March CPD afternoon #CurricCon15

Each department will be given an appointment to pitch their new curriculum to panels made up of SLT, students and employers. Their appointment will last 25 minutes. 10 minutes of this will be their presentation and there will be 15 minutes for questions from the panel. Their presentation must outline how their curriculum ideas include a consideration of FELTAG and how the curriculum enables learners to become T shaped and expand their progression opportunities as a result (all under the consideration of more learners for less funding).

It is recommended that their curriculum plans are shared with the panel by Wednesday 4th March so that they can make the most of their appointment time with the panel as they will have read the proposals. This is particularly recommended to those departments with large coverage.
