NEW Certificate: CCE (Design II)

We recently piloted a follow-up training session to the CCE (Design). This is for schools who have done the Transformation by Design training through the CCE (Design) and want to do two things:

  • evaluate how they have progressed using the model
  • explore the next stage of curriculum design (teaching activities, pedagogy, assessment) from a transformation philosophy and embracing backwards design

    We are thinking that schools would engage with this 12 – 24 months after the CCE (Design).
