Creative Partnerships provide the tools to help nurture and develop both the child’s and the adult’s creative skills, making a positive impact on their capacity to learn and grow … and keep learning throughout life.
Our aim for our partnerships is to help you to make positive change on the educational journey of your learners and teachers, whether it is through working with young people directly or offering professional development for educators, practitioners or artists.
By initiating a Creative Partnership you are showing a commitment to improve and a willingness to adapt new practices for the benefit of current and future learners and educators. Our partnership might start with professional development activity for staff and build to multiple year experiences as our relationship grows. Whatever your approach, CCE will construct a programme that aligns your work with the drivers for societal, educational and economic success in the 21st century.
Evidence has shown that Creative Partnerships encourage enjoyment of and engagement with learning, leading to wider educational benefits such as improved attendance, increased motivation as well as positive impacts on well-being, citizenship and building work-related skills.
Since its inception, the Creative Partnerships programme has influenced more than a million children, 90,000 teachers and is currently running in over 1,000 schools and communities globally. It is a celebrated and award-winning programme for bringing the arts, creativity and creative learning into the classroom, curriculum, cities and communities around the world.
Using the power of creativity, these partnerships empower young people and the adults in their lives to imagine and question how the world can be improved, giving them the capability to solve individual and collective problems, to create and innovate and to build confidence and a positive attitude towards their future learning and lives.
Every Creative Partnership is different, tailored to the aspirations of individual communities of learners and settings and designed to best fit educational or societal ambitions and goals.
Creative Partnerships work in virtually any setting – from a single classroom to as many as 500 schools across a nation or region. We have experience working with the very youngest of learners and at every stage of development, as well as with teachers, youth workers and artists in support of their lifelong learning and professional development too.
The Creative Partnerships initiative has had particular success working with children and young people from disadvantaged areas and those who face complex and multiple challenges and barriers to realising their potential.
