Overview

Secondary education is dictated by high-stakes accountability; progress 8, league tables and performance - there’s no escaping the fact that art and design, like every other subject in the school, must get the maximum performance from students who might not be as driven and motivated as their teachers want them to be. This course will lead you through this performance driven environment and help you find essential creative solutions. These strategies should help you and your students achieve, without feeling like the pressure is overwhelming.
