‘Primary Art and Design – National Curriculum Implementation’ Training

The Art and Design National Curriculum Programme of Study can appear vague and, as a result, rather challenging for non-specialists to implement confidently. We aim to clear up any confusion and enable schools and teachers to increase their subject knowledge and confidence. This course is designed to help leaders and teachers in schools ensure they have a clear understanding of the requirements of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Art and Design National Curriculum Programmes of Study and assist subject leaders in identifying specific areas for development within their school.

Based around our ‘Big Questions’ model, and tailored as much as possible to your school’s context and unique character, we will focus on providing answers that will enable staff to teach more confidently.

Who is this for?

Primary schools based in North West England (curriculum leaders, art subject leaders, class teachers, HLTAs)
It is designed specifically for those who lack confidence in delivering the Art and Design Curriculum and / or new teachers who need to develop their skills and knowledge.
