Universal CPD Module 5

Planning for Success 2
Curriculum Design and Development

As the MFLPR 2016 states: “Detailed planning of all stages of the modern language course is … a prerequisite to success”. (3.1)

Teachers know that well-planned, logically sequenced Schemes of Learning that give pupils opportunities to practise, consolidate, revisit and use language to create meanings that matter to them are the most effective in achieving successful learning outcomes.

This module will explore effective planning that embeds phonics, vocabulary and grammar and supports memorisation whilst avoiding cognitive overload.

“We learn new things, new content, new knowledge, new skills within the context of what we already know. So that is why sequencing is important.”

Honorary Professor Bernardette Holmes MBE, 2023
