The Artsmark Development day is a full day of CPD for two members of staff (one must be a member of your Senior Leadership Team). The purpose of the day is to explain your journey ahead, to support high level planning for the arts and culture in your school and to give you the opportunity to network and share ideas and planning with other schools in your area.
