Cultural Education - Take-up, diversity and developing skills for industry
Tue 8 Dec 2015 to Tue 8 Dec 2015
This conference will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to consider measures to improve accessibility to the arts
This seminar will consider the Government's priorities for cultural education. It follows the publication of the Warwick Commission’s report Enriching Britain: Culture, Creativity and Growth, which highlighted that 'a significant number of pupils do not take any creative or cultural subjects at GCSE'.

This conference will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to consider measures to improve accessibility to the arts, including government’s £109 million boost for children’s music and arts initiatives in 2015-16, as well as to examine the impact of schemes designed to improve engagement, diversity and social mobility within the arts, such as In Harmony and the Museums and schools programme

Delegates will identify steps to increase the uptake of craft-related subjects at GCSE and to encourage more students to combine Arts and Science disciplines at AS and A-level, following a recent decline in numbers. They will also consider measures to promote the value of cultural education in schools, including the Warwick Commission’s proposals that Ofsted should not designate a school 'outstanding' without evidence of 'excellent cultural and creative education'.

Further sessions are expected to address concerns that cultural education does not meet the future needs of the Cultural and Creative Industries, and will assess the value of the arts for society and the economy.
