Which staff would benefit from joining any why?
Curriculum leads from STEAM departments. For secondary schools, it would be beneficial to have curriculum leads from both STEM and arts subjects involved.
Middle/senior leaders with oversight of curriculum, careers, enrichment etc.
More junior staff with an interest in STEAM, if paired up with a more senior colleague/mentor.
What does the Hub plan to achieve and what resources will be created?
Strand 1: STEAM curriculum and pedagogy
- Primary STEAM Leaders will focus on embedding STEAM using a cross-curricular/ project-based approach.
- Secondary STEAM Leaders will focus on how STEM subjects can be taught in a creative way, encouraging a fusion between the sciences and the arts.
Strand 2: Whole-school approach
- STEAM Leaders will also develop approaches to embedding STEAM across the school, for example through links with the school’s programme of careers education.
Strand 3: Camden Curriculum
- The 5 schools running the Hub will develop a Camden curriculum, with feed-in from STEAM Leaders. This will be launched for the 2019-2020 academic year.
