This day has been designed to support the professional learning for curriculum leaders in relation to the implementation of the Australian Curriculum (AC) 9.0, with a particular focus on integrating the Biblical Worldview into the new curriculum for Christian schools.
This event is ideally suited to School Curriculum Leaders.
The day will begin with an initial information session - Australian Curriculum v9: What has changed and what are the implications for Christian Schooling? and will include a time for Q&A. There will also be a selection of collaborative workshops, where Curriculum Leaders can begin their planning for AC 9.0 implementation. A key goal for this professional learning event is to build collaboration and collaborative teams, across QLD Christian schools.
The sessions will be presented by two fantastic speakers - Jenene Rosser, ISQ Executive Manager (Curriculum & Assessment) and Leigh Witney, ISQ Education Services Advisor (Curriculum & Assessment). You can find more information about our speakers, below.
The cost of this curriculum event will be divided into two categories:
- Individual participant catering cost: $20 per person
- Overall program cost will be shared, equally, amongst the participating schools. That is, if 10 schools are represented at this event, the cost will be $270 +GST for each participating school.
Upon registration, the catering cost will be applied and payable. The program cost will be calculated post-event, and an invoice will be issued to each participating school at this time.
