The Learning Partnership offers consultancy support for Art led by Paul as follows:
1. Art & Design health-check service
Art and Design is an enormously complex and difficult subject to teach, often requiring specialist help and support. Our expert art consultant Paul Carney can do a health-check audit of your current art provision to ensure your school is either on the right track or to enable you to put effective plans in place. The health check will take the form of an audit of your art planning, resources, delivery, staff training, etc. followed by a 2-hour online meeting with key stakeholders and a final report of recommendations.
This will ensure you have taken all the necessary steps you can to teach art well and give your children the best start in art and design you can.
1. You would complete a quick audit document we will send in advance.
2. Paul will study any planning and current resources you have in place, to evaluate your current provision.
3. Paul will arrange an online meeting with your subject lead and/or senior leaders to discuss your art provision.
4. We will write a report of the findings which will include recommendations for how the subject could move forward.
2. Art & Design Curriculum planning service
Planning exciting interesting art lessons that are properly sequenced and embedded into your topics or themes takes real expertise. With Paul Carney to help, you can take all the difficulty out of this. Paul can work alongside your teachers to discuss your children’s unique needs to plan engaging lesson ideas that are knowledge-rich and creative.
This service usually takes at least one hour per classroom teacher /year group and will result in 3 ideas for units of work per year – autumn, spring, and summer. The stages of each unit of work would be fleshed out and discussed so the teacher can write it up in the school’s own format later.
Comprising a full day equivalent (Six one-hour sessions) These sessions can be done via Zoom interviews online and Paul would only need your long-term plan of topic overviews.

As an NSEAD registered art consultant, I offer a friendly, professional art consultancy service to schools, from early years right through to Secondary GCSE. I've worked with infant schools to improve art assessment, delivered primary school CPD on skills and progression, worked with Subject Leaders to raise attainment and done whole school, secondary art department audits including formal lesson observations and department reviews. My over-arching strategy is to support the professional development of hard working professionals with positive and constructive advice for improvement.
My consultancy bookings are now being handled by Iain Simper of the Learning Partnership. For enquiries email Iain here
