Mick used to be Chief Education Officer in Manchester and before that worked with Tim Brighouse in Birmingham. Mick is now leading the QCA work on revising the curriculum in Key Stage 2 and 3. It was wonderful to be able to share ideas and listen to what Mick is trying to achieve at QCA. He was really impressed at what we are trying to do here in Leeds...
- inspiring teaching;
- an engaging curriculum;
- a coaching culture;
- brilliant learning places.
We need to support Mick and the QCA who are trying to ensure that we get a curriculum that is both rigorous and challenging but also powerfully engages young people in their learning.
