Beyond a world of targets

Tim Oates

“Teachers in England have grown used to living in a world of targets. But we need to look at how we got here and what we are now doing – and how the 2014 National Curriculum marks a departure from things we have taken for granted.”

In the first of a series of videos available on Oxford Owl, Tim Oates, the Group Director of Assessment Research and Development at Cambridge Assessment, considers how we’ve all become used to living in a world of targets and what’s different about the 2014 National Curriculum. Drawing on his involvement in the review of the curriculum in England from 2010 to 2013, he shares insight into how the 2014 National Curriculum was researched and formulated.

You can view two more of Tim’s videos for free in the Professional Development & Best Practice hub on Oxford Owl.
