The curriculum was developed drawing on the ‘step’ procedure set out by Smith, M. K. (1996, 2000) in Curriculum theory and practice’ the encyclopedia of informal education. In this curriculum Smith sets out four ways of approaching curriculum theory and practice:
- Curriculum as a body of knowledge to be transmitted
- Curriculum as an attempt to achieve certain ends in students – product
- Curriculum as process
- Curriculum as praxis
The step model outlines the procedure which supports viewing curriculum as a product.
