This is one of those great BE phrases, that when I hear it, I don't perfectly understand it for a second.
"Scheme" in AE often has a negative connotation, and "Scheme" in BE is how we would say "plan" in AE.
I hear "scheme" all the time on TV when they discuss "government plans".
(I love those AE/BE differences!)
So the equivalent AE phrases might be:
Plan of work
Plan of work for the year
So I think Lorena's (Hi!) ""Piano di lavoro"/"Progetto di lavoro"" work, but I also wonder about:
Piano per l'anno
Thank you all so much for your suggestions. I have only just discovered this forum and I am finding it difficult to pull myself away from it. It's brilliant and I have learnt so much from reading replies other members have given. I think I will go with "piano o programma di lavoro per l'anno scolastico 2011."
Grazie a tutti per le risposte che mi avete suggerito. Un grandissimo aiuto.
