Event description

Description

As museum professionals, we want to train arts and culturally savvy teachers for the future. It means they will engage with us throughout their careers, inspire their pupils and foster meaningful, impactful engagements with the arts. Over the last three years, LMG has overhauled how we work with ITT providers, learning from the things that have worked, discarding those that no longer do, and creating a sustainable model for the future.

LMG have been working with two academic institutions, York St John University and Leeds Trinity University, and several teacher training alliances and SCITTs, on action research to ascertain how teaching trainees object learning skills during their initial teacher training ultimately influences their classroom teaching and learning. It's about training culturally-savvy teachers in a consistent, best practice way that will shape how they interact with arts and cultural organisations throughout their careers.

During this study afternoon, we will look at:

  • The teacher training landscape now: what's a SCITT? Do you have to go to uni?
  • The Leeds model: what can we learn? How can we replicate the model in other locations? What can you do to make that happen?
  • Where are the gaps? What do the trainees think? What's the most helpful thing for universities?

Speakers and further information to follow shortly.

Study afternoon in partnership with GEM Yorkshire and Humberside, Leeds Trinity University and York St John University.
