Religious Education
Delegates will gain some insight into cross curricular links that RE can make and will be given some very practical ideas for forging them. The spiritual dimensions that RE can offer will be examined in the light of new curriculum lenses.

Learning, Thinking and Revision Skills in Religious Education

Religious Education
Delegates will gain a wide range of practical strategies which they can use when teaching Religious Education, all of which help to promote deeper learning and thinking. In particular, these approaches will help them to help their students with revision for examinations, both within school and at home.

As these strategies are worked through on the day, delegates will gain a deeper insight of how their students can learn most effectively in all situations, helping them to transfer this understanding to other classroom activities and to learning beyond school.
