Course content

Trainees come together with Clare Medcroft, the Subject Leader, for a weekly opportunity to learn more about the subject and the pedagogy of Art and Design. It is an opportunity to learn from Clare, visiting experts and each other.

Visits extend trainees’ subject knowledge and provide ideas for school trips and the value of them. Recent trips have been to Oxford and London to see art first-hand and the course provides lots of opportunities for trainees to develop their practical skills linking with the work of contemporary artists.
