Educator Training Days

This Training Day has been developed for school leaders, practitioners and those in education generally who want to learn more about our unique curriculum. During the day:

  • You will learn about narration, how to do it, why it is so effective, and how you can apply it to your current learning environment.
  • You will find out how to implement nature study, walks and painting into your learning environment and how to use ‘high culture’ to enrich learning (such as Picture Study).
  • You will discover the underlying principles behind these educational practices.

The lesson observations are focussed in the Junior School where these methodologies are mainly used at Heritage. This is a unique opportunity to gain CPD in a distinctive approach.
