How are your display skills?;Miscellany
Some schools are lucky to have one or more members of staff who are naturally talented at presentation work but if there is no one around who is that way inclined the answer may be to ask Alternative Design to organise a seminar; it might be just the job for your next INSET day. Each seminar lasts four hours and includes lots of hands-on experimentation. The topics covered include the tools of the trade, standard materials, the right way to dress a noticeboard and the display table and the promise is that all materials are easily obtainable and affordable. The seminar costs pound;400 plus VAT and expenses.
