Art Subject Leads Training

Cost: Free to BEST Trust members or £75 per session to non-members. Cost will be reduced to £50 per session to schools booking 6 or more subject lead sessions per term.

Target Group: Primary Art Subject Leaders

Course Leader: Shelley Pennington

Subject Leader Briefings delivered by School Improvement Liverpool Ltd (SIL) take place each term, providing national updates to further develop the role of the subject leader. They are an opportunity for subject leaders to ensure they are kept well informed about national policy, enhance their leadership skills and practice and support colleagues in school.

The Education Inspection Framework (EIF) launches in September 2019 and puts curriculum at the heart of inspection. To gather evidence for the new ‘Quality of Education’ judgement, inspectors will spend more time talking to leaders and the process will involve conversations with curriculum leaders at a subject-specific level about:
• Intent (how their subject is designed and sequenced)
• Implementation (teaching and learning)
• Impact (children’s knowledge, skills and understanding)
‘Deep Dives’ will be a significant aspect of inspection from September 2019 and, based on final findings from pilot inspections, SIL officers will support subject leaders to explore the elements of a ‘Deep Dive’.

Course Information:
Art and Design briefings will also concentrate on progression within the specific domains: Drawing, painting, sculpture and how to use a sketchbook effectively. The process of stimulus to skills/ techniques to application will also be discussed alongside the statutory aim of studying artists, craft makers, designers and architects.
