Performing Arts is managed by the Creative Subjects Team who bring a variety of backgrounds and experiences together to offer outstanding support to OCR customers. The team shares nearly 50 years’ teaching experience in the UK and overseas, across the suite of subjects from KS3 to university lecturing, in a variety of contexts.
In addition to members of the team having come from teaching backgrounds, we also have experience of curriculum management in a variety of centre types and curriculum development expertise.
Our vision is to ensure that you have all the assistance you need as you use our qualifications, whether you are a longstanding customer or new to OCR. We are working hard to develop inspiring training opportunities, and innovative resources which will support you in delivering an exciting and relevant curriculum. This team has also led the development of our new suite of GCSE and A level qualifications, so are best placed to support you in your delivery of our qualifications. We are committed to developing a suite of support materials to ensure you are ready to teach the new curriculum, and confident in enabling students to make the best possible progress in the new linear structure.
As well as having a wealth of experience in supporting teachers, the team are passionately committed to their subjects beyond the classroom. We have worked in the media industry evaluating advertising campaigns for a number of familiar household brands; organised and performed in concerts and worked as Artist in Residence in both schools and museums. We are excited about the opportunities to bring these skills to play in supporting you as teachers in the twenty-first century.
