A Model of Quality Assurance for Primary Subject Leaders

This course will enable participants to share and develop models of quality assurance for subject leaders, whether this be directly as a subject leader, or a senior leader seeking to implement new approaches. It will allow participants to more acutely appreciate the effectiveness of their curriculum, by identifying its tangible impact on pupil outcomes in those subjects.
