Does the CfE look carbon copy for those English trained?

Discussion in 'Scotland - curriculum' started by fincastle, Jan 11, 2013.

  1. Since moving back to the Motherland after training and teaching in England, I have met with little recognition of my time spent down south. I would be as bold as to say it has gone against me. I have been told on numerous occasions that I do not have 'enough Scottish experience'.

    So, here I am 3 and a half years in having nigh on given up on teaching my specialist subject, Geography, (I now work in off site provision) and upon reading the 'new CfE propaganda' for said discipline, low and behold - it is like, what was being delivered in England for many a moon...

    Have others felt that their teaching exposure 'Down South' has, maybe, not been advantageous?
  2. I'm working in FE in Scotland after living and training and teaching in Newcastle for a few years.

    Somehow I've managed to blag my way through several interviews without having really looked at the CfE agenda until this afternoon. My main reason for logging back into the forum was to see if there were any comparisons between it and the now-defunct Every Child Matters agenda in England.

    They seem very similar to me...
