CPD, Support and Guidance

‘Fantastic course, thought provoking and inspiring.  I have a lot more confidence to try lots of different techniques and ideas’  KS2 teacher

We offer training and support for teachers and support staff, delivered by national and local specialists, throughout the school year.

 In 2021/22, primary schools can access training in:

Art, Craft and Design

Design and Technology (D&T)

The training can be booked on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.  However, schools will receive a discount when they book three training courses for the same subject.  For further information about primary Art and/or Design and Technology training, please visit Leeds for Learning.

Primary Arts Network

This is a half termly network, delivered virtually and free to access for any Leeds teachers with an interest in the arts.  For network dates, please visit Leeds for Learning.


Support and Guidance

For schools who require bespoke support, we have a 2 day Curriculum Support in Arts Subjects bespoke support package.  This could include: an Arts review; Strategic visioning and action planning; support with Art and D&T assessment; curriculum planning; middle leadership development; NQT support; whole staff development.  For schools that require less time, there is the option to purchase support for 1 day, half day or a twilight session.   These are all available through Leeds for Learning
