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.
