Kickstart your 5-year plan: Workshop
Includes free online course & Year 7 materials
Early-bird price until 18th May
Do you need to improve your curriculum, or join KS3 and 4 into a 5-year plan? Arguably the most important change you can make is to reshape your curriculum around key concepts and scientific thinking skills - the essential content that opens up higher grades at GCSE. Doing this gains you time to teach concepts in depth so that more students can succeed, and helps students remember the facts better by connecting them to bigger ideas.
How do you build a 5-year plan? And what changes to teaching and assessment are needed?
Kickstart your 5-year plan is designed to help you implement your own big ideas curriculum, based on the framework and principles we have developed (called Blueprint). It's a combination of a highly practical workshop aimed at KS3/4 teachers or heads of department, plus all the teaching and assessment materials for you to pilot one Year 7 concept.
The workshop is facilitated by Tony Sherborne and the Mastery Science team, who designed the KS3 Science Syllabus for AQA. It will run at many locations around England during June and July 2018.

I attended your workshop and thought it was brilliant. Excellent resources to help ensure mastery of science. We have a lot of work to do!
An extremely thought provoking course, for rethinking priorities in teaching science and the possibility of creating more 'space' in the curriculum.
An inspiring day with so many ideas. I definitely plan to make a start and make changes.
I really enjoyed this philosophy on education; really made me think. I will be changing the way I do things.
Great concept ideas: I will be suggesting these to my HoD and using Big Ideas. Thanks for a very good learning experience.
A really helpful course and lots of great ideas to start implementing.
Very useful and relevant. Likely to make an immediate impact on planning for lessons.
Fabulous day – I’ve got a lot from it. Lots of good ideas and discussions.
Great to have topic/syllabus drawn up as I’ve been battling this in my own rewrite from scratch.
