Non-GCSE – Lesson 3 – Initiate and plan a project

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

This lesson is a continuation of Lesson 2, so learners will need the feasibility report started in the previous lesson to complete the user requirements table.

This lesson will discuss the creation of SMART goals (objectives) and will introduce the concept of integration and iteration of stages within a project. Iteration of stages is particularly relevant if an agile or hybrid method is used, as the success of these relies on stages being repeated.

Learning objectives

  • Identify objectives relating to a project
  • Develop objectives into SMART goals
  • Define ‘iteration’ and ‘interaction’
