We offer a range of online events helping teachers to inspire the next generation of designers, makers and innovators.
V&A Innovate Talks
Join these free, online webinars to hear from designers, makers, and innovators about their practice. Also gain insights from teachers who have taken part in the National Schools Challenge, and come away with inspiration for the classroom.
Would you like to introduce V&A Innovate to your school, multi-academy trust, or ITE cohort? We offer free, bespoke online and in-person introductions to the programme. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and organise a session to help you start delivering V&A Innovate.
Each year we visit the V&A to introduce trainees to understand more about how museums can support and enhance learning for D&T. Trainees are introduced to V&A Innovate and they work in groups to respond to the brief, with their ideas presented back to museum colleagues a few weeks later. This is an excellent way for trainees to engage their own design skills, learn from each other and think about how they can design relevant and engaging learning activities in school.
