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 is 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 workshop session to increase participants’ skills. Our workshops can involve glass fusing and other kiln forming techniques, stained glass, glass painting, sandcasting, sandblasting, glass printing or ceramics.
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.
Arts Award CPD for Teachers, Saturday 18 April 2015, 10am - 3pm
This full day session has been specially developed to guide teachers through the Arts Award process, using National Glass Centre as a venue with support and advice from our trained staff advisors.
Participants will be led through the process of Arts Award Explore, including an overview of the Learning Objectives, logbooks, and pre- and post- visit activity requirements. Teachers will also participate in two glassmaking workshops that National Glass Centre has developed especially for students pursuing their Arts Award -- glass screenprinting and fused glass mosaics. Participants will come away from this session with new knowledge of glass making techniques and a good understanding of how their students can achieve the Arts Award.
