As part of the Learning Department’s busy programme of work, our Dance Education Officer Philippa Ranger has been delivering some Continued Professional Development (CPD) sessions for school teachers. Here she reflects on her experiences.
I have been lucky enough to work with the teachers at Green Lane Primary School in Bradford this term to deliver some bespoke CPD sessions. After meeting with the Head of Performing Arts at the school to discuss how Northern Ballet could support their school improvement plan, we decided to run two Twilight CPD sessions.
