1. Scheme options

When you first create a new scheme, you will need to sort through various options, including:

    • Name (e.g. GCSE 9-1 French Foundation)
    • Subject (e.g. French)
    • Course (e.g. Studio Edexcel GCSE (9-1) French)
    • Course Level & Length (e.g. Foundation, 2 Year)

Once you are happy with this step, use the Next button to continue.

 

2. Editing your Scheme of Work

Your new Scheme of work will have a default layout prepared by the course publisher. From the editing page, you can customise it to suit your needs by rearranging content, changing timings, and hiding modules/units as needed. Any pre-requsities for specific modules/units will be displayed for your convenience.

The examples below demonstrate how this might look with schemes created for GCSE French or A Level Mathematics.
