No Limits for teacher development with IVE and Hull City of Culture

14th July 2017 - admin

No Limits teacher development programme is an exciting range of events launching in September from IVE, in partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

The programme aims to push the boundaries of professional development and create a new generation of innovative thinkers in and around Hull by pulling teachers in Hull out of the classroom and out of their comfort zones.

Desperate to ‘unleash culture into the classroom,’ the programme’s various interactive workshops will be highly engaging and experientially different from any other teacher development programmes. No Limits will take teachers and place them in unusual and unfamiliar destinations where they will explore the cultural landscape and the home-grown creativity that the city has to offer.

Chris Strong, Head of Enterprise at IVE says; “this is an unprecedented opportunity to reach every classroom in Hull, unlocking the creative potential of our teachers and inspiring the next generation to engage through world class arts and culture.”

Some of the region’s most celebrated artists and creatives will deliver the sessions, developing, nurturing and supporting creative teaching and cultural confidence. Their interactive, engaging and innovative sessions on music, drama, dance, art, literature and comedy, which draw on Hull’s rich cultural offer, aim to instil Hull teachers with a passion for local art and culture and equip them with the confidence and tools needed to unlock their own creative potential.

As Ian Read of Hull City of Culture adds; “By unlocking the creativity and cultural confidence of our teachers, they will be better equipped to support, nurture and champion the creativity of young people for years to come.”

The programme will continue to run until summer 2018. Teachers in Hull can book onto upcoming sessions for free by logging on the Hull City of Culture No Limits portal.
