Schools Offer

Schools play a vital role in ensuring that every child and young person has access to arts and cultural experiences. IVE’s schools offer is a range of ways in which we can support schools to deliver fantastic arts & cultural education.

Our 2013 report, Opening Doors, outlined the pressures and priorities schools are now facing. It identified opportunities for arts and cultural providers to support and engage with the education sector and continues to inform our work with schools in the region.

We support the education sector to develop and improve the quality of their arts and cultural education for all children and young people by:

  • Encouraging schools to join local cultural education partnerships and other local arts networks.
  • Encouraging schools to register for Artsmark.
  • Encouraging schools and other education settings to offer Arts Award.
  • Offering CPD, events and opportunities to help improve arts and cultural provision.
  • Sharing knowledge and information to help improve and increase arts and cultural opportunities for children and young people.
  • Nurturing partnership working between schools and arts and cultural providers.
  • Providing one-to-one support as needed.

Cultural Leaders in Education

We are currently developing a Cultural Leaders in Education Programme. This will enable school leaders to become champions of arts and cultural provision. It will build on our previous Specialist Leaders in Cultural Learning and Education programmes.
