Filmed Course – NEW ‘What does Donaldson look like in KS2?’

 

In his ‘Successful Futures’ Report the ethos, principles and pedagogy of the current Foundation Phase was identified as a significant strength of current educational practice in Wales. It was recommended that schools build on successful ‘Foundation’ practice, philosophy and pedagogy into the middle and later years of primary education and beyond. How this works in practice needs to be carefully managed to ensure that transition issues are removed and progression is ensured.


Cath’s live presentation of this course has been filmed to bring the course content alive, once purchased is available for schools to watch over and over again from our training platform, but is not downloadable.
