“Good skills in drawing, a fundamental subject skill, underpin good achievement in later secondary school and post-16 education.”  - Ofsted.

CPD session for teachers of KS2-5: "How to Sketch like a Designer!"

As a company with expertise in the teaching and learning of design skills, we are delighted to offer a CPD session with a difference. Tailored to Primary OR Secondary school level, our course can be delivered during a teaching day or as a twilight inset after your teaching commitments, aiming to give you simple but effective teaching methods to use in every design lesson. You'll be playing host to Mark, our teacher in residence and creator of the IsoSketch drawing tool, who will pass on his 'tricks of the trade' which can be implemented into any design project. The sole aim of the course is to allow you to skill-up your pupils with simple, effective and time-saving methods for producing designer-like sketches. If you're tired of seeing the same old oblique, pencil crayon sketches, or sick of hearing "I can't draw!" then this is the course for you!

We also offer a discounted rate on IsoSketch Classpacks, so you can book your CPD with us and save money on your resources at the same time.
