Teachers' INSET and CPD

Equipping teachers to use illustration across the curriculum.

Stimulating and empowering course. Thank you!” School Principal, Berkshire

It's fun and inspiring and you leave with plenty of ideas that you want to action straight away. It's in no way intimidating – you won't feel judged on your own artistic ability.” Assistant Head Teacher, Essex

Developed with teachers over nine years and delivered by professional illustrators, our acclaimed INSET and CPD sessions for those teaching Key Stages 1 and 2 equips educators with accessible, effective, creative and fun ways to incorporate illustration techniques across the curriculum.

Our whole-school INSET or CPD sessions are the most effective way to ensure that all teachers are empowered with the confidence and skills required to inspire pupils across a range of subjects.

We can tailor sessions to specific needs or school goals such as using sketchbooks, boosting literacy, optimising classroom display, painting and drawing or cross-curricular planning. Contact us to discuss how we can meet your particular requirements.

Illustrating the Curriculum CPD:

Our one-day professional development days for primary teachers are held twice a year are aimed at all primary teachers – especially those who think they “can’t draw”. Spend a day developing illustration skills and confidence, and leave brimming with ideas to put straight to use in the classroom. Our professional illustrators take you through a range of practical, accessible techniques with use in science, literacy and the wider curriculum. Next dates to be announced.
