SASPA/DfE Timetable 2022 Forum
The secondary school timetable is the organisational structure that we use to control time in ways that balance effective teaching and learning groupings with an efficient use of human and physical resources.
The last major timetable reform work undertaken systemically was in 2009/10, in response to the converging agendas of curriculum change (the introduction of the “new” SACE); industrial reform (specific face-to-face teaching and non-instruction time settings outlined in the 2010 Award) and the re-introduction of per-capita funding to schools.
Agendas of a similar magnitude are forming currently. From 2022, secondary schools will accommodate the curriculum, learning and well-being needs of Year 7 students, at the same time as they introduce Career Development and recalibrate how VET access is organised in response to funding changes. Within the same timeframe, secondary schools will need to strategize how students are given ample opportunities to develop and evidence skills and capabilities within their SACE studies. Alongside these student learning agendas is the need for schools to optimise teacher collaboration time.
On Monday 21st September we are providing a forum for secondary leaders to explore the timetabling possibilities emerging from these converging agendas.
It is an event which will place considerable emphasis on the thinking or philosophy behind our current or emerging timetables as a vehicle for realising our ambitions for curriculum, pedagogy and wellbeing in our schools.
