Teacher CPD

We offer a range of CPD sessions, to inspire you with new ideas and techniques to enrich a creative curriculum. We are happy to discuss content and tailor a session to meet your needs, as closely as possible. Sessions start from one hour and can be run in-school or at The Artworks. Outcomes from sessions may include:

  • Increase your skills and confidence in teaching Art and Design. 
  • Learn practical art techniques that can support subjects across the curriculum.
  • Discover innovative ways of using materials you already have in school.
  • Gain ideas for extension and development and creative ways of displaying artwork.
  • See examples of art projects run in other schools.
  • Tour of building, including Artist’s Studios.
  • Receive written resources to take back to school. 
  • Discover how The Artworks can support you and your school through projects, workshops and staff training.
 

Teach Meet

Our Teach Meet sessions are aimed at Primary/Secondary school teachers, TAs and Art Coordinators. Through this friendly, supportive group we share ideas, advice on art materials, and lots of tips and advice on how to enhance a creative curriculum.

With activity ideas for all ages, using materials you probably already have in school, you will be inspired by ideas to take back to the classroom and run with your pupils.

Teach Meet sessions are run by Ami Hallgarth, Schools Programme Manager and guest artists. We will be happy to show you around the building and discuss individual enquiries about school visits.

We’ll have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to keep us going!

Please book your free place through our website, or by e-mailing ami@theartworks.org.uk
