Continued Professional Development

National Glass Centre specialises in delivering practical Continued Professional Development sessions to teachers and education professionals. These sessions are led by our experienced Learning and Engagement team alongside practicing artists and are aimed at broadening teachers’ creative skills.

The focus of these sessions will be to familiarise participants with the galleries, learning spaces and creative studios at National Glass Centre, increasing confidence in using our venue as a learning platform, as well as providing a practical glassmaking session to increase participants’ skills. Our practical sessions can involve glass fusing and other kiln forming techniques, stained glass, glass painting, sandcasting, sandblasting, glass printing or ceramics. We offer a number of sessions delivered around changing themes throughout the year or, if you would like something specific, we can tailor sessions around a theme of your choice.

If you have your own kiln at school, we can offer one-to-one courses to help you get the most out of your equipment.
