Attention Secondary School Art Teachers!
Arts Connect are offering an amazing menu of FREE CPD workshops for teachers during the Spring/Summer terms.

We know that young people experience inequality in the access they have to high quality, inclusive art education and progression opportunities into HE and beyond. In response to this Aspire to HE and Arts Connect are offering a funded programme of art teacher CPD sessions that focus on diversity and representation in the art curriculum and engaging and inspiring boys through visual art.

Based in a Black Country art venue, each teacher CPD session will be led by an established artist educator who will equip art teachers with new skills, knowledge and inspiration to build on the breadth and diversity of their curriculum, reflecting students’ educational needs, interests, lived experience and heritage.
