Five Day Virtual Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Due to the NSW Covid restrictions Big Picture has been forced to make changes to our Tamworth Training (September 6 to 10, 2021). Rather than cancelling, we have decided to use these dates to run daily online workshops. These workshops will be followed up by face to face training in December 2021 (Covid allowing).

  • teachers interested in teaching in Big Picture schools or academies
