Teacher CPD

Teachers are missionaries for story. Our Teacher CPD sessions are designed to help your hone your storytelling skills and rediscover your passion for stories.

Our Teacher CPD twilight sessions have been run across the country since 2016. Our CPD session has featured in the Cheltenham Literature Festival programme, and we have delivered sessions to staff teams based at places as wide-ranging as The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Peterborough Central Library, Oxford University’s Department of Oncology, and dozens of state and independent primary and secondary schools. Since 2016, we are proud to have partnered with Oxford Brookes University’s School of Education to jointly deliver the BA Education Storytelling Pathway Module.

TEACHER CPD OFFERS

Reinvigorate your teaching and your own love of stories and leave energised with sparkling ideas for your class. Our Learning & Participation Team offer a range of twilight CPD sessions at your school. Sessions last for 90 minutes and can be adapted to your school’s thematic and strategic priorities. Please email learning@storymuseum.org.uk to discuss a session.

SESSIONS

Oral Storytelling

Using theory and practice from a range of ancient, modern, and contemporary oral storytellers, this is an introduction to the art of oral storytelling. The Story Leaders will guide you to create that magic sense of collectiveness with you and your students through a story that only exists once, in this form, right now. The session introduces the Story Museum’s vast collection of 1001 stories as a starting point for resource ideas.

Creating Oral Stories

Learn spontaneous storytelling techniques so that you can create oral stories with your students ‘from nowhere’. Banish inhibitions so you and your students can relax and enjoy practising this ancient craft.

Building Narrative Environments

Learn some top tips for making your own themed story space simply, cheaply and effectively, with inspiration from The Story Museum’s unique slant on curation.

‘We really, really enjoyed the storytelling workshop. I tried the stories out on my 6-year-old when I got home and it worked like magic. Amazing.'
