NEU member David reports on Creative Curriculums event

On Saturday 16 November, NEU Northern held a CPD session on ‘Creative Curriculums’ led by Nik Jones. Although active in the NEU, I am very new to teaching which meant I went to the session as both a willing helper and attendee. The session provided me with a very inspiring message that I will take with me through my career - we may be constrained by restrictive curriculums, but through creativity we can ‘jump through the hoops’ laid out for us in an inspiring and engaging way. 

As a teacher with middle leader aspirations, this was an incredibly powerful reminder of what we can do as a profession to fight for education for the reasons why we came into the profession - to inspire young people.

The session was well led, highly informative, as well as enjoyable. I would highly recommend this and similar sessions to fellow members of staff in my workplace, professionals in my district, and beyond.
