Notice reference #: 1HA9HE

Developing an integrated, or rather, an integral, curriculum is essential to the future of education. Currently, teachers are struggling under the “overcrowded” curriculum as they frantically seek to deliver programmes of learning that meet all the expectations of schooling in the 21st century.

This course will provide an introduction to the principles and practices of developing an integral curriculum, using the experiences of Amesbury School as a reference point for exploration.

Who will benefit from this course?

This course is for those who are seriously asking questions about how we meet the needs of all our students in these complex and uncertain times. It is not for the fainthearted because integrality is not a quick fix or a simple concept; and it is likely to challenge some deep seated beliefs about teaching, learning and curriculum. However, this course is a great opportunity to make a start in a safe learning environment.


Where: Amesbury School, Wellington

Length: 1 full day – 9am–4.30pm

When: Monday 31 August, 2020

You will leave the course with greater knowledge and understanding of developing an integral curriculum, an increased commitment to actually doing it, and a plan to get started and some tools and resources to help you.

Facilitator: Lesley Murrihy with Urs Cunningham
