Arts Award Teacher’s Evening - Wednesday 13 March
How can Arts Award link with other curriculum areas like maths and physical education?
How does Arts Award work equally well with gifted and talented pupils as it does with students with literacy or behavioural problems?
How Arts can Award support transition from primary to secondary school?
Find the answers to these questions, plus many more at our first Arts Award Teacher’s Evening here at Salisbury Arts Centre.
The session will be led by special guest Ruth Jones, who is a senior trainer and moderator for Arts Award. Ruthhas worked with schools and cultural organisations all over the South West, and will be sharing her expert knowledge and advice with us on effective ways to deliver Arts Award.
The session will take place on Wednesday 13 March, begin at 5pm and end at approximately 7pm, with time for informal networking and discussion as well as any questions. There will then be a performance of Yael Flexer and Nic Sandiland’s brand new dance piece, ‘Weightless’, which we would like to offer all participants a complimentary ticket for. The performance begins at 8pm, and will feature a curtain raiser performance from our Youth Dance Company, Jigsaw. As well as key information from Fran, we will also be looking at Arts Award case studies and the ways in which schools and arts organisations can work together to deliver the Award.
Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so if you’d like to sign up please contact Youth and Education Co-ordinator, Ellie, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01722 343024. This event is not only for teachers already running Arts Award, but also for anyone who is thinking about how it could work at their school or to support Artsmark. This will be an ideal opportunity to speak to an expert and share your experiences with other teachers in the area, as well as seeing first hand how it can work. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
