Subject Specific


Outstanding planning, feedback and assessment for all RE teachers
About this course

It has been a challenging time for RE teachers. Inspectors have highlighted weaknesses in RE teaching and as a subject, it has often been undervalued by schools. This can leave teachers feeling isolated and unsupported, particularly if they have inherited RE teaching as a non-specialist. This course is a chance to celebrate the value of excellent RE teaching and the invaluable contribution that this can make to the school curriculum. The session will provide practical strategies that can be implemented immediately in the classroom in order to raise standards in RE.

This course is suitable for all teachers of RE, specialist or non-specialist, and would also be useful for curriculum leaders in order to understand the place and importance of RE to school curriculums. This course is delivered by an RE specialist with over 20 years of knowledge of the RE world. Incorporating a review of the latest guidance for RE, this course will increase the confidence of all RE teachers so that they can feel able to deliver inspirational lessons that will lead the way in their schools.

This course includes:
• Superb course materials
• Refreshments and a two course lunch

Course Outcomes:
