Macro-sequencing (Digital)


Together with the Association of Colleges (AoC), Gatsby carried out a research project exploring the macro-sequencing of T-level curriculum, with a focus on five technical education routes.


Macro-sequencing is a structured and logical progression of a programme informed by strong pedagogical decisions. This research, in partnership with the Association of Colleges, has collated feedback from 55 providers who took part in the research: 24 completed a survey, 51 had in-depth interviews, and 55 attended focus groups between January and August 2023. This research presents two models for the macro-sequencing of the T Level Digital Production, Design and Development together with feedback on implementing diagnostic assessments, sequencing core and occupational specialism content, embedding skills into the curriculum and implementing industry placements.
