Evaluate and improve your subject
Evaluate your subject or department
Visit the curriculum resource hub for resources to help you improve the curriculum for your subject/department, including subject-specific audit tools, case studies on innovative curriculum approaches from other schools, and more.
Use the curriculum tools alongside our subject/department evaluation templates and guidance – they'll help you identify strengths and weaknesses.
Plan for improvements
Once you've identified your strengths and weaknesses, develop your improvement plan and set it in motion.
Use our guidance on developing a subject action plan to help you prioritise effectively, set SMART targets, and identify clear actions and success criteria.
Then, organise your monitoring schedule to help you track your initiatives throughout the year.
Use these resources to help you collect evidence and track progress towards the goals set out in your improvement plan.
