CPD & Teachers' Events

Our range of professional development programmes introduce the Gallery as an educational resource, supporting teachers to interpret portraiture and develop programming ideas for classroom work and Gallery visits.

We offer a CPD programme of practical workshops and after-hours exhibition twilight with guest speakers, which give our teaching audiences a special insight into our Collections and exhibitions.

Bookings are essential and non refundable. Please sign up to our termly e-newsletter. New events will be released throughout 2016/17 academic year.
