What is The Textiles Teacher Roadshow?

See photos and find out more about past Roadshows 

The roadshow brings together textiles teachers, trainees, teaching assistants and technicians. It takes place in several venues across the country, including Nottingham, London and Dorset.

The aim of the day is to share ideas, and create an inspirational buzz about teaching an exciting 21st Century curriculum. The day is more of an event than a course, with lots to see and do as well as lots of freebies to take away. The cost of the day is a fraction of a normal one day course with the chance to get a taste of the exciting things happening in textiles education.

Most of our courses are very small with up to 8 delegates but this event is one of the exceptions with from 30 - 45 places depending on the venue. Although the larger numbers mean this is a less personalised event than the smaller courses we run, there is just as much to learn, and there's a real buzz in the air, as well the chance to network with a large number of teachers from across the country.

Who can attend the Textiles Teacher Roadshow?

Anyone! The day is targeted at D&T textiles teachers but it may also be of interest to art textiles teachers and those doing the Fashion & Textiles Tech Award and lots of these teachers have attended in the past. The day is also suitable for non specialists who want to find out a bit more about textiles in the GCSE. Technicians and trainees teachers are also welcome.
