Expert Advisory Group

Expert Advisory Group for Art and Design (2013-14)

The Expert Group and authors of the materials are subject experts across all phases of art education – drawn from schools, universities, providers of initial teacher education, Ofsted, consultants and advisors as well as subject associations. These groups (formed by the then Teaching Agency in January 2012) are sector-based and are independent of the Government.
