Towards a Creative Curriculum will explore the impact of learning in an arts-rich environment and how it can support the new Ofsted framework.

2018 Global Teacher Prize winner Andria Zafirakou, artist Bob and Roberta Smith and cultural education expert Professor Jonothan Neelands will lead the keynote speeches at a major new conference run by Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning and RSC Education in January.

Aimed at teachers from early years to Key Stage 3, Towards a Creative Curriculum will examine the impact of learning in an arts-rich environment and how this can support the new Ofsted framework. You will hear directly from educators about how cultural learning can raise aspirations, attainment and student wellbeing, and take part in practical workshops and sessions led by experts in creative writing, drama, dance, music, visual arts and Shakespeare.

Jacqui O’Hanlon, Director of RSC Education, commented: "Leading educators and employers agree that problem solving, critical thinking and creativity are the top three skills children need for future success. However, we know from our own Time to Listen research that arts subjects are now one of the only places where students feel they can develop these capacities... This conference is a must for any teacher interested in the unique role that arts-based learning plays in realising the potential of all young people regardless of age, background or perceived ability."

Towards a Creative Curriculum takes place on Friday 10 January 2020 at the Barbican Centre, London. Tickets cost £65 per teacher when booked before 31 October.
