Drawing on the extensive archive of case studies from the Creative Partnerships Programme, from sculpture and storytelling to film and multimedia skills, and the experiences of Creative Partnerships individuals, Creative Partnerships in Practice is the authoritative guide to embedding creative learning in schools. The Creative Partnerships programme, run by the Arts Council, England, was the largest schools-based creative learning intervention ever seen. Artists and creative practitioners worked side by side with educators to bring creativity into the classroom. Over the course of a decade it helped almost 5,000 schools, 90,000 teachers and over one million young people to embrace creative learning both in school and at home. Written by David Parker, former Director of Research at Creativity, Culture & Education (CCE), this practical handbook builds on the Creative Partnerships programme and explains how you can embed the key principles of creative practice within your school.

Creative Partnerships in Practice gives a full and refreshingly clear account of the many faces of creativity and the theoretical and assessment models that have been used to define it. If you are wondering what creative learning looks like and what the benefits are for children, parents and schools by doing it, then Parker's book will offer you excellent and insightful examples that can be easily applied. Well written and with evidence tumbling off the pages of the many rich and rewarding personal as well as academic outcomes, you may indeed ask yourselves why every child isn't able to access creative learning experiences, every day. This book will get you itching to make it happen. * Anna Cutler, Director of Learning, Tate *
Creative partnerships was an important initiative that helped to bring creativity into many schools and classrooms. However, the initiative didn't exist in a vacuum and David Parker's book traces the origins and explores the legacy with skill and attention. It is an impressive record of the initiative and a sound foundation on which creativity in the classroom can be taken forward now. * Estelle Morris, former Secretary of State for Education *
Protecting and developing young people's creative-mindedness is one of the most important jobs in the world. David Parker distills the lessons of the ground-breaking Creative Partnerships programme into vital, practical lessons for the future. If you care about creativity, read this book. * Guy Claxton, author of What's the Point of School? *
David Parker's new book, Creative Partnerships in Practice: Developing creative learners, offers a rare and enlightening look into the operation and impact of a large scale project in creative education. Relying on a combination of statistics and case study methods, Parker shows how this remarkable program affected pupils, teachers, administrators and parents over a 10 year period. It will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in creative education or in arts and cultural education, as well as educators who wish to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning in their schools. * Larry O'Farrell *
This book is a treasure of real-world case studies offering deep insights from one of the world's most significant creative education programme. I am extremely impressed with the readability of its presentation, scope of coverage and depth of research. It's a must-read book for anyone interested in strategic creative education, its impact, potential and sustainability. * Professor Samuel Leong, Director, UNESCO Observatory for Research in Local Cultures & Creativity in Education *
