LEAD CREATIVE SCHOOLS

We are delighted to play a role in the Arts Council of Wales Lead Creative Schools scheme.

The scheme aims to promote new ways of working, with innovative and bespoke programmes of learning designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning. It will work with schools to provide the creative people, skills and resources that are needed to help them address the learning challenges.

Iola Ynyr, our Artistic Director, has been appointed as a Creative Agent, and she is working with specific schools to identify how a creative project might be most effectively introduced and owned by the school. They will then work together to plan the project in response to the school’s needs and development priorities.

Learning is something for everyone

We recognise that continuous learning is something for everyone and we want our artistic program to reinforce this by offering inspirational experiences that enriches the way we see the world.

Our strategic objectives are:

  • Maximise the potential of learning in our artistic program.
  • Recognise the opportunities that will come through the Creative Learning Scheme.
  • Develop and trial radical creative teaching plans.
  • Implement training and development plans.
