Newly Qualified Teacher Training Programme

workshop participant and leader 

FREE Training for Manchester Primary NQT’s and TA’s

We've developed this training programme to support new teachers to take risks and deliver the curriculum creatively. It shows them how artworks can inspire new ways of working, while also addressing the practicalities of visiting museums and galleries. Please pass this information onto colleagues, headteachers and induction tutors.

Please keep checking for further training dates from January 2015 which will be posted here.

Teachers’ feedback

"When I leave I am going to arrange a visit to use the paintings around the gallery to create a narrative and advance the plot."

"I will visit the gallery and other galleries in Manchester more often to gather ideas to use in Art Club, consider what exhibitions are coming up and talk to fellow teachers about the opportunities at Manchester Art Gallery."
