Programming Overview Updated

The Programming Overview document has been updated based on recent feedback.

The content has been significantly reviewed and updated to bring it up to date with key messages about good programming using the four Challenge Areas.

It has also been updated with the new branding and to remove the “Pioneers” titles originally featured on this very early resource for the new program.

You can find version 2.0 in the Weekly Program page, under the Programming tab.

Program Planning Templates Zipped

Two Microsoft Excel documents have been created to support program planning for Units. One is The Program Planning blank template, and the other is an example of a completed template.

These files are now combined into a single zipped toolkit for download: Program Planning Toolkit (Interim).

(These are interim while we await the development of an online digital system for program planning and the new program).

.zip files can be “unzipped” on Windows and Mac computers without installing extra software.

Go to the Weekly Program section, under the tab Programming, to find the toolkit.
