Creative Professional Development Sessions

Our professional learning programmes provide opportunities for teachers of all year levels to engage with art, connect with colleagues, generate cross-curriculum links and develop practical ideas and strategies to enhance their teaching and learning.

We run up to three Teachers CPD sessions per year, which include artist-led workshops and exclusive access to our temporary exhibitions or the Kettle’s Yard house.

‘Away-day’ group teacher CPD

Looking to generate creative ideas and inspire teaching and learning practice with your colleagues at school or within your Academy Trust? We can help tailor a group CPD session using Kettle’s Yard as your classroom: explore the house or exhibition themes and ideas, and respond creatively in an artist-run workshop.

Sessions can be tailored for the following learning outcomes:

  • Inspiration for creative writing
  • Art and nature
  • Art and identity
  • Sculpture
  • Contemporary art

If there is a learning outcome not listed that you would like to explore, discuss your needs with us:

Sessions are 10am – 12.30pm and include light refreshments.
Sessions are £300 for up to 12 people.
