Training and Professional Development

Our professional development programmes aim to provide education leaders with on-going peer support and professional development. All events are led by expert arts educators and artist teachers.


Supporting staff across KS1-5 and those specialising in additional needs, we help you explore creative approaches, which you can adapt for all ages and abilities to benefit your student's learning, aspirations and wellbeing. 


For staff in Somerset, we have regular networks and a sketchbook group to collaborate with peers and re-connect with your own creative practice.
