This one day workshop can be added to an ITT or ITE course to equip prospective teachers with techniques and strategies to enable pupils to enhance their own creative skills; thereby increasing attainment and enabling passionate, independent learners.
Built upon 20 years of research, this training will equip participants with an understanding of what creativity is, a knowledge of the competencies that need to be developed in learners so that they can make rapid progress and the pedagogical techniques that will help develop the creative capacities of the pupils they will teach.
The course uses fun and immersive activities which can be adapted to use in classroom, alongside group interaction and reflection techniques. Participants gain an understanding of how to ensure their pupils become independent learners who are resilient to the pressures of modern day life, and confident in finding solutions to problems in different contexts.
This course is appropriate for both those who are looking to work in the primary and the secondary sector, and is applicable across the whole curriculum.
People studying to become primary or secondary school teachers in any subject.
