Support and Guidance

As part of the Learning Improvement 0-19 Team, the Arts Development Team offer schools support in, and through, the arts through a variety of routes.

Bespoke support and guidance 

For schools who require bespoke support, this can be purchased through Leeds for Learning.  Schools can purchase anything from a  single twilight to a number of days.  We respond to the needs of the school, but support 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.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of this, please contact

Support for subject leaders

Primary Art and Design and Technology subject leaders can access support through a suite of training which is delivered throughout the academic year.

Meeting four times a year, each session has a specific focus.  For details of the training opportunities in 2022/23, please click on the following links: 

If your school purchases all of the training sessions for Art or Design and Technology, you will receive a 10% discount. If you have any specific questions about the bespoke support or how we can help you deliver the arts in your school, please contact
