Co-ordinator development programmes can be organised on a group or individual basis to support the evaluation of the subject, identify strengths and needs and improve provision through a range of strategies. This can include the writing of action plans that map into the school development plan or devising assessment procedures that match the needs of the school.
I have worked successfully with co-coordinators from a number of local schools including Cleves, Carpenters and Winsor. I have delivered the Primary Art Network meetings for the London Borough of Newham for many years and have worked alongside the co-coordinators to ensure professional development opportunities that meet their needs. At every meeting we engage in some practical activity as ell as looking at current local and national issues and their impact on the subject and their own settings. For the last few years I have negotiated with the Whitechapel Art Gallery to hold the meetings there.
