Creative Partners for Progression
Creative partners for progression (CP4P) was a national project that takes a very innovative approach to raising the aspirations and achievement of young people in schools.
In an age of an increasingly instrumental approach to the benefits of education and lifelong learning the CP4P project took and continues to take a refreshingly different approach to working with young people and their teachers where creativity takes centre stage.
This was done through a range of project activities including the Steve Mesure‘s creativity sessions with maths and science teachers in Coventry, Hull and Merseyside; the pupil film-makers in Cumbria; the visits to artists studios in Plymouth and the ‘speed dating’ sessions with arts practitioners in Coventry.
The CP4P project has successfully demonstrated the benefits of partnerships, schools, higher education institutions and creative practitioners.
