We have created a bank of ‘creative’ university subject taster workshops that can be delivered live via Zoom, Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams or in our schools.
These are tailored to support the art curriculum and inspire students to consider continuing to study a creative subject at FE & HE. These Video/worksheet resources are designed to be used as part of a facilitated session by a teacher/tutor/Higher Education Champion or can be set as independent learning. Where available, videos are displayed below the workshop title and accompanying worksheets are in the download section below.
