Arts, culture and creativity: improving your school, or trust, and its curriculum
All Ways Making Director Christina Birt was commissioned by Arts Council England (ACE) to design and develop this e-learning module for the National Governance Association.
It was first published in December 2018 to all registered learners on the National Governance Association (NGA) Learning Link platform; it was updated and relaunched in Autumn 2019; and fully revised and updated in Autumn 2022.
The module aims to
– provide essential information about how arts and cultural education should be used to support school improvement and where learners can go to find out more
– empower governors, trustees and their governing boards to find new ways to support the improvement of their pupils’ education through arts, culture and creativity
– help governors and trustees identify next steps to strengthen arts, culture and creativity in their schools and increase its contribution to improvement in their school or trust
91% of learners who took the module said that the module has and will change their governance practice in relation to arts and cultural education.
98% of learners who took the module said that they will recommend the module to others.

Feedback from participants:
“It has given me confidence to find my voice as a freelancer and to not be afraid of holding my own space and value”.

“Sets a perfect tone for our sessions, is a great listener, and always helps us stay on track with the process when needed (and willing to be flexible when she notices we need more freedom). The way the space is held for us and the generosity in what is shared. It always feels like a very safe space and we are guided through the process with a gentle kindness that makes deep sharing very easy”.
