Curriculum for Excellence: an introduction

This three-hour training session is a hands-on introduction to Curriculum for Excellence, which has a particular focus on the contribution youth work can make to this key educational policy.

This training is suitable for: youth workers, teachers and anyone else who works with young people

Curriculum for Excellence makes it clear that its aspirations for Scotland’s young people to develop as successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens, are not just for schools: youth work has a powerful part to play. 

This training session introduces Curriculum for Excellence to learning providers, including youth workers, before having an in-depth look at the Experiences and Outcomes that all children and young people should achieve, regardless of the setting. Delegates will leave with a practical tool to support them to identify Experiences and Outcomes most relevant to youth work.

Intended outcomes:
•    Develop your understanding of Curriculum for Excellence and how your work relates to it
•    To understand the Curriculum for Excellence experiences and outcomes and to be able to describe your own work in terms of them
•    To discover how non-formal learning awards can demonstrate achievement of experiences and outcomes
