Cascading Carnival - Staff CPD Masterclass Workshops

Sessions run after schools as twilight staff CPD, each session lasts 2 hrs. By the end of each session teachers will have learnt the skills to cascade the techniques to their own classes, and will take away a resources pack of materials to make the project with all their pupils. We can work with groups of 10-20 staff, from the same key stage with 2 artists.
