Teacher Artist Partnership (TAP) CPD Summer Course is an arts-in-education initiative where Artists and Teachers train to work in partnership.  This programme can lead to opportunities for a TAP trained teacher to host a fully funded TAP artist residency in his or her school in the coming academic year.  This Creative Youth, Department of Education and Skills led primary initiative is a highly innovative, creative and participant-responsive programme that promotes professional learning towards partnership.  TAP online maximises engagement through a broad range of on and off-line activities.  Learning activities include practical, multidisciplinary arts experiences through multimedia interactives, video instruction, collaborative posting boards and discussion forums and reflective practices.  Tutors, teachers and artists provide responsive feedback and encourage collaborators to reflect on personal and professional development through the co-creation of learning.  TAP’s core focus is the development of creative partnership between teachers and artists.
