Creative INSET: using puppetry across the curriculum
24 November @ 14:30 - 16:30Free
A New Direction’s Creative INSET programme offers a series of free, online CPD sessions for London teachers at any stage of their career working in primary, secondary and special schools.
The sessions are designed to inspire and re-energise teachers, giving you time and space to experience new creative approaches and reflect on how you can embed these in your practice. Each session will teach specialist skills which can easily be transferred to the classroom.
