Coventry & Warwickshire Teacher Network CPD Events - Secondary Summer Term

Secondary Dance Teacher Network - Dance in non-traditional spaces

Wednesday 7th June 2023, 4.30-6.00pm

Daimler Powerhouse, Coventry

Looking for exciting ways to bring a new wave of inspiration to your students and their choreography?

Both Motionhouse and Ascension Dance tour exhilarating outdoor work to festivals, high streets and other non-traditional spaces, taking performance to people who  ordinarily wouldn’t visit theatre spaces and enabling them to engage with dance in their community.

Join Motionhouse and Ascension at the Daimler Powerhouse in Coventry to explore how each company approaches and creates work for non-theatre spaces. Discover how your students can take their choreography out of the classroom or studio and into different spaces across the school grounds.

Secondary Visual Art Teacher Network - Art, Outdoors & Creative Journaling

Thursday 6th July 2023, 4.30-6.30pm

Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park

Indulge in a tour of the latest Compton Verney exhibition, led by curator Amy Orrock, which focuses on nature, environment and design. You will also have the opportunity to explore the outdoor Living Symphonies installation before participating in a practical session, led by Creative Arts and Therapy facilitator, Lindsay Jane Hunter.

Lindsay will guide you to discover how creative practices can be adopted in urban spaces as well as rural settings through creative journaling processes. This opportunity will present you with new ways to approach arts interpretation in the classroom, supporting meaningful reflective and therapeutic experiences and encouraging students to take a more flexible approach to the visual arts.

Secondary Drama/English Teacher Network - RSC, The Empress for English & Drama teachers

Thursday 6th July 2023, 4.30-6.30pm

Belgrade Theatre, Coventry

This free workshop at the Belgrade Theatre, led by an RSC practitioner is for both English and Drama teachers. As well as offering insight into the play, we will explore productions choices made for the production playing at The Swan Theatre from early July.

Whether your students are studying the play or not, this meeting will give you a chance to network with like minded colleagues and pick up drama approaches to use back in your classroom.

All events are free for all KS3-5 teachers, support staff and trainee teachers based in Coventry & Warwickshire. Light refreshments will be served and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking and peer support.
