How can we all use our creativity to improve young people’s futures? This programme of learning, professional dialogue and inspirational events exploring creative leadership, and leadership of creativity is open to everyone – whatever your role, context or subject specialism.

Ollie Bray, Strategic Director, Education Scotland, launches the week with a keynote asking: COVID: a Creative Crisis or Creative Opportunity? [& what should schools do next?]. The week’s events feature contributions from practitioners and learners from across the Northern Alliance including:

  • Learners from North Walls School, Orkney, share their film – ‘This is Who We Are’ – and a vision for their school that is uniquely theirs.
  • Dyce Primary, Aberdeen share their creative approaches to curriculum planning with thematic work across the four contexts linked to the local community.
  • Colleagues from Moray talk about the Moray Skills Pathway and their creative approach to supporting a consistent language around skills through the use of skills cards, allowing learners to take ownership whilst giving practitioners a useful tool for assessment, profiling and learner conversations.
  • Aberdeen’s cross-sector partnership – Fit Like Hubs – talk about creative change, leadership and their sometimes messy journey to finding solutions to keep children, young people, and communities safe, healthy, and thriving.
  • Highland practitioners and leaders discuss why they continue to drive creative approaches to learning in these challenging times, with a renewed focus on collaboration, connection and coherence. They will discuss their ambition for a 3-18 learner profiling and skills progression building sustainable, ambitious pathways and outcomes for all learners, embedded in local contexts.

Throughout the week, leaders at all levels and from a range of settings share practice, inspiring stories, ideas, provocations and design challenges all focused on creativity in leadership, curriculum design, teaching, learning, assessment and life – with sessions from Creative Learning Networks, Creative Learning Plan partners, school leaders, practitioners and learners from across Scotland.
