Lead Creative Schools Scheme Practitioner Callout - Monmouth Comprehensive
Deadline: Thu 25 Apr 2024
Monmouth Comprehensive is looking for one or more Practitioners (no set artform) to work on a Year 1 LCS Project. Enquiry: Can a group of Secondary Pupils become creative learning consultants and trainers within their own school?

We want this project to be genuinely pupil led. We envisage one or more Practitioners coming into the school and working alongside a chosen team of pupils, using various creative methodologies. The idea is to upskill and coach these pupils so that they will become creative specialists, trainers and consultants. They will study and explore creativity, why it matters, what its role is, and how/why it should play a greater role in education. Eventually they will lead workshop activities and train teachers.

They will look at:
different areas of the curriculum, collaboratively generating ideas on how creativity can be embedded in teaching methods;
how the Creative Habits of Mind can become common terms used within the school;
how an understanding of the principles of the High Functioning Classroom can boost engagement, wellbeing and achievement, as well as creating more rounded and confident human beings.

To this end, we are open to ideas. There is no set artform, and we want to hear your ideas.

The key is that the approaches to creativity which emerge must be relatively easy to replicate and disseminate throughout the school after the project is finished.

Some (purely optional) ideas that spring to mind so far:
simple podcasting and spoken word recording - can this create ways of engaging with a topic, and enhancing pupil voice?;
physical drama and movement - learning with your body, regulating your emotions, self-expression;
methods of focusing the attention and settling the mind.
engaging with curriculum topics in other ways which use creative thinking

It is hoped that Project Delivery will begin before the summer holidays.

The practitioner fee will be based on a rate of £300 per full school day. Some planning time will also be paid at the same rate.

Please see brief under Associated Downloads on the right of the page for full details of the project and how to apply.
