Every chapter ends with five key takeaway points for you to carefully consider. The book neatly interplays theory, research, Sam’s expertise and experience coupled with a practical and real world approach. The first section of the book champions the importance of the curriculum and knowledge. The second section examines behaviour and how this can be driven by senior leaders coupled routine driven approach to learning. This section also takes you through a series of curriculum tools and teaching approaches that will assist you in thinking about how to implement and drive the curriculum.
