Creative Learning Award

The Creative Learning in Education Award has been designed to support Creative Learning leaders and teams in schools and other educational settings, to develop a whole school culture of creative learning. Using a developmental framework schools will evaluate their current creative teaching practices and pedagogy, identify gaps, develop and strengthen these and work towards a commitment to creative learning for their whole school community.


The award recognises the value that a creative learning community can have for both staff and pupils and the benefits and impact that the arts, culture and creativity can have in developing meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for inclusion and positive wellbeing of young people and adults in 21st Century learning.

The award covers six key competencies each with a series of statements that schools will work to embed:

  • Creative Pedagogy

  • Professional Development and Learning

  • Ethics and Values

  • Pupil’s Learning Capacities

  • Partnership

  • Diverse communities and pupil voice

The evidence informed framework enables evaluation of the work of a Creative curriculum whilst also helping to give structure to the development plan for improvements within the school’s commitment to inclusive practice within the six underlying themes which are:

  • Ethical citizenship

  • Emotional literacy

  • Imaginative flourishing

  • Possibility thinking

  • Self-autonomy and confidence

  • Collective problem solving
