Founded in the mid 1960’s ISADA is an association for the professional development of art and design teachers within the independent sector. It holds two or three conferences a year that usually take the form of a weekend meeting at an independent school

Weekends include lectures, demonstrations, workshops, visits to galleries, exhibitions of students work, tours of the host school, art book and art material sales, and visits to local artists, amazing food, and wonderful company.

ISADA weekends are simply the best CPD that an art teacher can ask for – the chance to network, to visit other schools, to meet with examination officers, artists, curators, authors and art teachers in both formal and informal settings.
