DT Subject Network
BEP School Improvement
1.5hrs Starting Thursday 7th December 2023
There will be three subject network meetings over the course of the year, delivered by experts in the subjects. The networks will give curriculum leaders an opportunity to keep abreast of current thinking and share good practice. Our providers will focus on both disciplinary and substantive knowledge. There will be a mixture of online and face to face delivery, giving you a chance to have a more hands on approach.
