Art and Music INSET
Our day long INSETs are designed to give you time and space to experience new creative approaches and reflect on how you can embed these in your practice.
Back by popular demand, artist Alex McIntyre and musician Tara Franks will kick us off on November 10th with fresh ideas and activities to fill your teaching toolkit. As practicing creative professionals in their own right, and veterans of arts education work, Alex and Tara will focus both on the creative and the practical, whether you work in primary, secondary or other settings. Prepare to make, move, sing and play!'
INSETs are free to attend. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
