Teaching Professionals

Find inspiration in our regular series of events for teaching professionals. Meet our artist-educators to get lots of ideas for outdoor learning and network with peers across the sector.

Context, Material & Question: Teacher CPD

Date: 14 November
Time: 16.00–18.00
Suitable for: Teachers (all key stages)
Price: £15.00 pp
Join us this autumn term for the first in a series of three new termly twilight CPD sessions which help you develop creative and critical thinking strategies for unpicking and discussing sculpture with your class. Each session will focus on a key area:
– Context and Relevance: Sculpture through history
– Creative Making Lab
– Questioning & Developing Dialogue 
Refresh your understanding of sculpture and be inspired to support your class to understand why and how sculpture is relevant to them in their world today.
We’re pleased to be able to offer this CPD at £15.00, but a cancellation/non-attendance fee will be applied 7 days before the event, to allow us to re-allocate places.   
To book, please contact Kathryn Brame, Formal Learning Programmer on kathryn.brame@ysp.org.uk / +44 (0)1924 832540


Whole Staff Training

We can provide training days for your school at YSP, tailored to your needs and led by our staff and professional artists. For more information or to discuss your needs, please contact Kathryn Brame


Initial Teacher Training

Our School & Colleges sessions can be adapted for students in Initial Teacher Training and PGCE courses, modelling ways of using art and the outdoors in 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, contact our Formal Learning Coordinator, Kathryn Brame    

Student Placements

We are happy to host weeklong student placements for Year 10–13 as part of their work experience programme. Placements are organised between YSP Learning and the school or college, not with individual students. We also host student placements for undergraduates interested in developing their professional practice within gallery education. These are limited in number and are agreed by open application.
