About this CPD event

We are delighted to offer this joint CPD opportunity at Hampton Court Palace in partnership with Arts Award. The session provides teachers with the opportunity to explore Hampton Court Palace and look at the diverse art forms on display. We will also consider how to use these to enrich the KS1 and KS2 Curriculum back in the classroom, and explore effective ways to gather evidence to achieve an Arts Award.

The session will include a palace tour delivered by a costumed interpreter who will provide unique insight into art at Hampton Court, offering inspiration for teachers thinking of bringing their students on a self-led visit.

Teachers will also have the chance to take part in an ideas-sharing workshop about:

  • Planning and preparing for a visit to a heritage site.
  • Using your heritage visit to support high-quality learning in the classroom.
  • Criteria, expectations and evidence-gathering relating to Arts Award.

For teachers unfamiliar with Arts Award, the session also provides an overview of the awards, its links to other programmes such as Artsmark, and how it can add value to your school.
