Fusion Futures

Group of students sitting with teacher in a classroom

Join us for an online CPD session focusing on how you can use fusion skills and fusion thinking to incorporate careers provision into your teaching practice

Led by creative careers consultant Torri Stewart, the session will be themed around fusion skills – a broader ‘bundle’ of skills including digital, creative, social, interpersonal competencies as well as a range of cognitive skills such as judgement and decision making, critical thinking and problem-solving. Research has demonstrated that fusion skills are becoming increasingly critical to the 21st-century workplace.

This free online event is aimed at secondary school teachers of arts subjects (including but not limited to art, design technology, drama, music and media). The session will include an overview of fusion skills and fusion thinking, equip participants with example activities that could be used with students to meet Gatsby Benchmarks, and give those involved the opportunity to connect with other teachers and educators.
