I work at a school where the KS5 English co-ordinator role seems non-existent. Teaching in this department seems to muddle through SOW but not much else. I ask this as in most English departments there are KS3 and KS4, co-ordinators. For those of you who are or have worked in KS5 English teaching, what is this role about? KS3 - years 7-8 or 9 and the curriculum is the main priority and how it filters through to KS4 requirements; KS4 - GCSE preparation and KS5 - preparing for the jump from GCSE and acquiring higher order English skills etc? Are there any courses to attend regarding making the most out of KS5 with a specific criteria or is KS5 purely due to being an experienced teacher who just teaches it? I would welcome any comments you have on KS5 English and what the key roles and responsibilities are.
