Curriculum Leadership Development Programme Introduction

The workshop kicked off with an introduction to the Curriculum Leadership Development Programme, outlining the qualities and duties of a curriculum leader. A pre-workshop survey had been conducted to gather insights into the leadership capabilities that school heads desire in a curriculum leader and their perspectives on the significance of different panel tasks.

SWOT Analysis and SMART Subject Plans

Participants explored the use of SWOT analysis for implementing values education in their subject and discussed strategies to address identified challenges. The workshop also offered guidance on writing SMART subject plans.

A highlight of the event was the hands-on activity, during which participants worked together to write and apply the concepts they had learnt and receive immediate feedback from their peers.
