The boards meet three times a year – once per term – to review student output from the previous term and input ideas into the curriculum for the upcoming term. The board will be formed of industry experts and teachers from Global Academy.
The board is not expected to provide teaching and learning guidance. Its ambition is to give teachers feedback from industry about how they can keep the skills taught relevant to industry practice and ensure that the curriculum at the Academy stays cutting edge. This could include offering feedback to the teachers about the students work and if the techniques used to create it mirror what would happen in the workplace, or suggesting relevant skills and technologies that could be embedded into the future curriculum.
