Overview

The focus of teacher training is shifting away from specialized subject knowledge and towards the development of transferable skills that can be employed in coordinating any area of the primary curriculum. This book examines the management and leadership techniques that trainees and practising teachers need in order to become subject consultants or effective members of a senior management team.

With an emphasis on the practical techniques and strategies of curriculum management, the book also deals with the theoretical, practical and technological issues facing teachers as they create and manage curricula. Drawing on their considerable experience, the authors guide readers through:

- establishing a direction
- working with resources
- leading and motivating colleagues.

This book is an essential resource for trainees and teachers at every level as they confront the rapidly shifting demands of their profession.
