This digital online course will enable you to understand the updated 2022 Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education at a time convenient for you. The Agreed Syllabus is the curriculum that outlines the Religious Education to be taught in local authority schools for any given local authority. In Birmingham, many academies also choose to teach RE according to this document, as it has been AGREED by the faith communities and non-religious groups of our city. A conference comprising of faith communities, non-religious groups, teachers and local authority representatives met over an extended time and discussed, but more importantly agreed, the way in which RE is to be taught.The course content will cover how to ensure legal compliance for RE in your school and will focus on the Birmingham approach to teaching Religious Education, including the recent changes. Dr Simone Whitehouse-James has worked in the capacity of drafting secretary for the syllabus and will explain the Conference’s decisions around the changes that have been made.
