CPD for Education Sector
CCS brings regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development) opportunities for the Education Sector. Our CPD is for Shropshire based schools and educational settings wishing to develop their own creative practice and improve curriculum offers for pupils across all artforms and cross-curricular subjects. See below for CPD coming soon.
Ofsted Broad & Balanced Curriculum: deep dives in arts subjects
What is the role of the arts in the new Ofsted framework?
Thursday 19th November, 4.30pm-6.30pm
Venue: Virtual via Zoom
CCS have Wayne Simner, HMI for Schools, Ofsted detailing what a Broad & Balanced curriculum looks like for Shropshire primary schools and what Ofsted are looking for within their deep dives across arts subjects, including art, music, D&T, drama (within English) and dance (within PE). The new quality of education judgment will focus on the overall intention, implementation and impact on learning and progress but what does this look like and what does it mean for art subject coordinators, SLT, Headteachers and Governors?
We will also hear from Mandy Jones, Headteacher of Criftins CofE Primary School, about their creative curriculum and how they achieved Artsmark Gold.
There will be an opportunity for networking, sharing ideas, experience and best practice, there will also be a Q&A opportunity following the presentation to ask your burning questions.

Arts Cafe: Dance delivery in the Virtual World
How can physical practice take place online?
Wednesday 25th November, 6-8pm: with Rachel Liggitt, Co-director of Shropshire Inclusive Dance, (SiD) Dance Artist, Educator and Coach.
Digital practice can never replace face to face delivery but there are ways in which we can embrace it and use it positively with children and young people. In this Arts Café Rachel Liggitt (previous technophobe!) will share her insights, learning and discoveries following over 8 months of ‘delivering dance differently’.
The choreography of our lives has changed in ways we could never have predicted. Many of us have seen dance now taking place in the home, alone or in smaller groups, from safe distances and with masks or screens rather than through physical contact. However, new spaces and practices have emerged, with learning and participation evolving and finding new ways to safely connect with children and young people.
Please join us to hear some of Rachel’s digital stories and practical approaches.
Venue: via Zoom
Teacher Network and CPD Development
Following research and consultation that CCS have carried out with schools, we are working in partnership with CPD@UCS and developing teacher networking and CPD sessions, focussing on art, drama and dance curriculums for both Primary and Secondary.
CCS and CPD@UCS will shape 4 termly teacher networks within Primary Arts, Secondary Art & Design, Secondary Drama and Secondary Dance. We are hoping the first Networks will be available in November/December 2020.
The networks are being supported by Arts Connect, the West Midlands Bridge Organisation who work with a variety of partners to ensure all children and young people can benefit from engagement in high quality arts and cultural activities.
