Know Your Subject Deeply

Know your subject deeply was a project that was joint funded by Compass Hub and Ealing. Subject leaders were employed to lead sessions about curriculum leadership after a joint session around pedagogy changes in the new Ofsted framework. The project is now in its second year. This year's activities have been led by subject experts to increase the subject knowledge of all teachers. Followed by a session to further develop the skills of subject leaders. Finally, the subject leaders are spending a day sharing their progress and supporting each other's development. If you'd like to get involved, see the events on the homepage - non-Compass Hub members are welcome, however there is the tiny charge of £20.
