Past Event

Join us to hear from three teachers who took part in the V&A Innovate National Schools Challenge last year. They will share their range of experiences delivering the challenge with different year groups, embedded within a D&T curriculum, and as part of an after-school club. Come away from the session with ideas and top tips for how you can run V&A Innovate in your setting. Holly Burton, National Schools Programme Producer at the V&A will also provide an overview of the challenge and introduce this year’s themes: Adapt, Care and Disrupt. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session with the speakers.

We will be joined by:
- Sarah Dowley, Thomas Gainsborough School
- Tracey Shahlavi, Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College
- Kate Windle, Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College
