Engaging with Schools
Date Created: 7th Sep 2021
Cultural Education Partnerships (CEPs) were launched nationally in 2015 in response to Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge, with a focus on supporting children and young people’s arts and cultural opportunities within their specific locality.
Engaging with schools is a fundamental part of a Cultural Education Partnership’s purpose. This resource summarises different types of CEP and school engagement including the challenges and different approaches adopted.
This resource is the one of a series of resources developed by Artswork to support Cultural Education Partnerships in their planning, evolution and strategic conversations. The full set of resources can be found here
The content for these resources has been drawn from a 2019 developmental evaluation, carried out for Artswork by Ben Sandbrook/World Pencil, of 13 Cultural Education Partnerships in the South East, including data analysis, structured interviews with CEP members and Artswork staff, and an online survey.
