Evaluating the Manchester Curriculum

Project Details


Rethinking the relationship between Formal and Informal learning: Study of programme designed to construct a new curriculum based on the assets of local communities.

Layman's description

In 2009 I was commissioned by the RSA to conduct a review of their Manchester Area Based Curriculum, a project in which schools were supported to draw on the resources of the city to design a new curriculum. A literature review and the report for this project are available on the RSA’s Area Based Curriculum Pages. Since then, I’ve been working and writing with Louise Thomas, the RSA Senior Researcher for Education, on the relationship between the local area and the school.
