Taking in the role of Art co-ordinator in your school can be a challenge, but all challenge can be positive!
This training day will look at how Art and Design can be delivered effectively across your school, considering curriculum, progression and assessment. It will also help you develop confidence in your role as subject co-ordinator, whilst letting you network with others in the same role. You will be ready to meet the challenge of the role, with both enthusiasm and knowledge.
During the day you will:
• Reflect on your art curriculum: are you teaching art, craft and design or do you focus on art?
• Identify how Art fits in with your whole school development plan and with your curriculum model
• Explore how the subject is taught in your school: is it a discreet subject or is it delivered across the curriculum?
• Consider the most effective way of supporting your colleagues, who may be non-art specialists
• Create a cohesive curriculum model that allows for pupils to progress
• Develop clear ways of assessing children’s progress in art, without using levels
• Find out about local and national support
• Consider the relationship between Art teaching in a primary school with the UK creative industry sector
