In this two-part SecEd Podcast, we speak with expert Matt Bromley, a former teacher and school leader, SecEd editorial board member, and author, about curriculum design.

Based on his new book, School and College Curriculum Design, Matt takes us through his six steps for effective and coherent curriculum design, focusing on Ofsted's new inspection requirements as well as general best practice principles.

These six steps are to: Agree the vision, Set the destination, Assess the starting points, Identify the way-points, Define excellence, and Diminish disadvantage.

The first podcast in this series, which is available here, covered steps one to three. This podcast is part 2 and focuses on steps four to six.

In conversation with SecEd editor Pete Henshaw, Matt offers a range of practical advice and reflection, as well as some key questions to help schools evaluate their own curriculum design work.
