Education and the Arts, Culture and Creativity: An Action Plan, 17/09/10 [S]

The Scottish Government has published an expressive arts, education, culture and creativity action plan under Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland.

The Plan brings together the education and cultural sectors to provide exciting learning experiences to ignite children's imaginations and help them develop their creative skills.

Action being taken forward includes:

  • Establishing the Creativity Portal website, which will feature good examples of creativity in education and allow teachers to browse projects and opportunities offered by cultural organisations across Scotland
  • Providing training and professional support to teachers and creative practitioners
  • Developing a National Arts Education Network involving all of Scotland's local authorities
The Minister for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop, said:

"The Creativity Portal - the first tangible resource from the Plan - will aid the rollout of Curriculum for Excellence in our schools and give teachers a forum for sharing best practice across the country."

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
