FOCUS

This conference comes at a critical time for leaders and teachers of Art, Craft & Design.

Design and HODs who are looking to the implications of the key changes currently and

For the conference this year we are pleased to welcome experienced, lead players, Ged

Gast (President NSEAD) and Susan Coles (past President, NSEAD, national art education

advocate) who will lead Keynote sessions on the recent NSEAD Survey and ways forward,

using assessment to improve learning and student progress, and the importance of

(Head of Faculty in Visual Arts, George Abbot School) whose department has been judged

outstanding; she was also recently asked to write the ‘Good Practice’ Art and Design

assessment case study for Ofsted HMI, and will be co-leading sessions with

Ged Gast, and also Michelle Parsons (Art Teacher, Brentwood School, A Level

Moderator) who will be taking sessions on the new GCSE specifications.

Throughout the day representatives from the Campaign for Drawing / Big Draw will be

11.00 – 11.20am

11.20 – 12.10pm

This session will focus on the current pressures and pitfalls of the new assessment without levels systems that schools are

developing, and the difficulties of trying to create assessment, marking and feedback procedures in art and design that

promotes progress with a focus on quality.

• NSEAD will share their Assessment without levels model which is proving highly effective in guiding the development

of school based systems, and was used as a the starting point for the OFSTED HMI ‘Good Practice Guide’ example

showing how this is working very successfully in a large art and design department.

• This case study model will share examples of effective baseline assessment, marking, tracking sheets, success criteria

statements and a replacement for levels that runs from Year 7 to Year 11 integrating GCSE Assessment Objectives.

Drawing: Diversity, Innovation, and Inspiration: Michelle Parsons

12.10 – 1.00pm

Drawing should be purposeful, adventurous and involve risk taking, creativity and thinking.

Drawing has new emphasis in all key stages and within all new GCSE specifications. Ofsted studies and the work of the

Campaign for Drawing/Big Draw shows that drawing needs to be understood and used for different purposes, to be

inclusive and accessible to all students.

• This overview will look at drawing across the key stages and include case studies from the successful and influential

national TEA (Thinking, Expression and Action) CPD Drawing programme which was run by NSEAD and The Campaign

for Drawing.

Outstanding Leadership: Leading A Successful Art Department

NEW

COURSE

FOCUS

Leading an Art Department is a unique and challenging role, never more so than it is now;

increased accountabilities, curriculum changes and issues, the relentless drive to improve results

are just some of the challenges currently facing HODs.

This updated course will focus on those key issues, including the areas under keen scrutiny by

Ofsted – strong, effective leadership, strategies to improve and enhance performance levels of

student learning and achievement.

The course leader for this course, Becky Mizon, steered an inherited ‘inadequate’ Art and

D & T Department to ‘outstanding’ within four years. Since then her department and teaching

have consistently been judged as ‘outstanding’. During this time GCSE results have doubled,

uptake has dramatically improved and student engagement and passions for learning are

strong.
