Event description
Helping you to get boys back into art, craft and design and improve their attainment

About this Event

Over more than a decade, the underachievement of boys in art, craft and design has become an issue of concern. There are now twice as many girls than boys choosing to continue with the subject at KS4. In KS5 the gap is even bigger. Girls achieve higher results and the gap between genders in their final grades is significant.

Although there is little subject specific research, there is ample evidence in Ofsted reports and in anecdotal evidence that schools can address this problem with targeted intervention. This is related to curriculum design and teaching styles and of how (most) boys work, and how it is different or similar to girls.

This course will help you understand the issues, and to address them by looking at the evidence, discussing how you can develop more inclusive learning models at all key stages and make the subject meaningful, relevant and engaging to learners of today.

It will support you in developing realistic and achievable strategies to make changes, to identify your own CPD needs and to achieve the goal of getting boys back into art, craft and design and also improving their attainment.

Susan Coles has been researching the topic, and running courses on this, across the UK for a number of years, and will also be sharing case studies from teachers and schools she has worked with, Susan will share her own experiences of developing courses which have proved highly popular with boys, without excluding girls. This course is suitable for all phases of education.
