Judy Thomas, Val Tobiass

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Val Tobiass, Berwick Visual Arts and Dr Judy Thomas, Northumbria University have worked together on the Create, Aspire, Transform: North Northumberland Schools Cultural Education Leadership Programme in four North Northumberland schools over the last two years.

During the session they will discuss key outcomes from the programme, including; considering the transformation that participating teachers went through during the programme; unpicking how artist-led interventions in school challenges the current approach to teaching; and how non specialist primary teachers can build confidence to embrace perceived unconventional approaches to learning in their classroom.
