In a project funded by the Helen Hamlyn Trust, the Chartered College of Teaching has published a variety of resources for practitioners to support in encouraging creativity and independent remote learning through a non-digital offer.
To launch this project, we hosted an online event where we shared information on the resources available, and heard from professionals who have written compact guides as part of the resource package.
