IVE is a charity that is working to ensure a more creative future for businesses, teachers, children and young people.

IVE supports the development of creativity as a transferable skill to improve employability and productivity. We connect young people with great cultural opportunities and aim to inspire the next generation of creative and culturally literate entrepreneurs.

Established in 1997 we have been at the cutting edge of creative learning policy and practice for more than 20 years. Since April 2012, we have been Arts Council England’s (ACE) Bridge organisation for Yorkshire and the Humber, working with the arts and cultural sector, schools and other learning environments in the region to help children and young people access great arts experiences.

We want to commission an individual, small team or organisation to research and evaluate the impact of IVE’s three Partnership Investment funded CPD programmes – Specialist Leaders in Cultural Learning 2014-15 (SLICL), Specialist Leaders in Cultural Education 2015–17 (SLICE) and Cultural Leaders in Education (CLE) 2017-19.

We want to find out what impact the programmes have had on the schools, pupils, teachers and arts organisations involved. The final report is to include examples of best practice and opportunities for development, as well as what changes need to be made to any future programmes to achieve the aims of developing arts, cultural and creativity lead teachers in schools.  We also want to be able to place the Yorkshire and Humber SLICL/SLICE/CLE programmes into the national picture of recognised outstanding arts and cultural school leadership practice. The commission fee is £6,000 including VAT, travel and expenses.
