Teacher Development: Skills in Your School

Skills in Your School

Daisi offers diverse, creative and engaging teacher development workshops led by experienced and professional artists.

In a Daisi Skills in Your School workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to work alongside a professional artist and invest in their own creative practice, taking away knowledge and skills that can be adapted to their own classroom, often making links to other areas of learning or curriculum topics.

Workshops are developed in partnership with your school to tailor the session to suit your needs, aims and outcomes.

What are the benefits?

How much does a Daisi Creative Professional Development workshop cost?

A Daisi Skills in Your School workshop starts from £340 for a half day session of up to 2.5 hours, including the design and preparation of resources. Travel and materials for your artist will be an additional cost and will depend on art form and artist location.

Costs for longer workshops may vary according to individual project features, or the individual requirements of a particular artist or setting.  Prices quoted are for activity taking place in Devon and Torbay. Prices for other locations may vary.
