Opportunities for educators

Art education is an integral part of the Learning offer at YSP. We provide annual opportunities for educators to develop their own creative practice and art education approaches in our unique setting. Join us to find inspiration in our regular series of CPD events for educators and teaching professionals. Develop new skills and enhance your confidence in exploring contemporary art with learners.

Discover new ideas for outdoor learning in support of art education and develop knowledge for teaching creative processes. We work closely with Yorkshire Sculpture International and the Arts Council Collection to help education professionals network with peers across the sector to develop a broad and balanced curriculum.

Whole Staff Training

We can provide training days for groups of education staff at YSP, tailored to your needs and led by our staff and professional artists. For more information please email our Learning Programme Coordinator at learning@ysp.org.uk.

Initial Teacher Training

Our artist-led sessions [link to page] can be adapted for students on Initial Teacher Training and PGCE courses. Our artist educators model ways of exploring art in the outdoors for both Primary and Secondary teaching. The sessions enable students to reflect on creative learning strategies through direct experience of an artist-led workshop.

Events for teachers

Special exhibition previews, teacher study days and networking events are programmed throughout the year. If you are interested in bespoke sessions for teaching professionals, please email our Learning Programme Coordinator at learning@ysp.org.uk
