3.3.1 Schemes of Work

Welcome to chapter 3 of the 'Planning and Delivering Learning' module. The last chapter explored the ways in which we can plan effective learning within a single lesson; this chapter expands this idea to examine schemes of work. We will explain exactly what a scheme of work is and why they are important to long-term learning - we will also discuss the ways in which a scheme of work can be structured, and how to ensure that a scheme of work maps out the learning that should take place over the duration of a course.

  • To understand what a scheme of work is and why planning long-term learning is essential.
