Professional Learning

One of the main aims of the Arts & Education Network is the development and delivery of high quality Professional Development opportunities for teachers, artists and arts organisations. NAWR seeks to generate confidence and creativity in teachers, learners and practitioners through inclusive, collaborative, process-driven, arts-based projects and professional learning opportunities.

Our workshops take place in arts venues across the region and are led by professional artists who understand education and the way schools work.

We deliver high quality training, an inspiring experience with online resources that will ensure that participants come away with the knowledge and confidence to deliver.

As we develop skills-based workshops for teachers and artists, we find that text based or video resources support, remind and inform the participants leading to a deeper understanding of the subject.

If a participant can return to the subject and remind themselves of the core structure, specialist terminology and techniques they are more likely to feel confident in their delivery in the classroom.

We can also give links to relevant artists; local, international and historical and suppliers of materials and links to other online resources.
