Raising Attainment in Primary Art

All children need the opportunity to be creative and express themselves. It allows children to think, investigate, explore all whilst developing skills and the confidence to be themselves. But how do we ensure that the skills and knowledge children need are taught in enough depth and that our curriculum is progressive? In this one-day course we will:

  • Develop an understanding of art’s place in the development of ‘cultural capital’
  • Improve the teaching and learning of art in simple practical ways
  • Explore how art can be developed into a more integral part of the curriculum
Explore course dates and locations

About this Course

Art skills are like any other skills: they need to be taught, practised, honed and developed but art can sometimes be a poor relation in our curriculum as demands on our time can often mean that our focus is on the core subjects. 

This training will:

  • Look at how art can be used as a gateway into learning in other curriculum areas 
  • Explore how to structure your curriculum to meet – and exceed – the requirements of Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities
  • Consider the use of art to improve wellbeing, behaviour and attitudes to learning
  • Enable your subject to continue its journey towards excellence.


  • Audience Primary teachers
  • Subject leaders 
  • NQTs and RQTs 

Further Information

COVID-19 update:

Please note that, until the end of May 2020, our CPD courses will be delivered via live webinar instead of at the venues stated below. This gives teachers and leaders the ability to interact with the trainer and course without the need to attend the venue. 

Even better, if we live-stream your course, a recording of the course will be available for you to view for one month after the course date, meaning you can enjoy the course anywhere, any time, even if your plans change at short notice. 

From June 2020, if government and health/safety recommendations mean that we're unable to operate our CPD courses at the venues below, we will commit to either providing the training by live webinar stream or giving you the choice to reschedule to a later date at no additional charge.


At TT Education we aim to provide you with the outstanding training experience you deserve, from the fantastic resources you receive to the beautiful venues we hold our training in, with lunch and refreshments included.

Please note that the exact venues used in each town or city are subject to change. We will send a Welcome Email approximately 7 days before the date of the course, confirming the venue.
