The Art of Learning in Partnership
Start date: Aug 1, 2016,
End date: Jul 31, 2018
The objective is to: * Improve work related outcomes for learners in the creative and cultural industries, engaging 4 partners in a new collaboration, through 60 mobilities over 2years. * Develop teacher training and placements of teaching staff to support Continued Professional Develop (CPD)* Develop new strategies and approaches to achieving work-related learning, and integrate this into curriculumThe Institute and our partners are strategically committed to improving its quality of teaching and learning, which ultimately will be demonstrated through rising achievement rates and positive student destinations. In seeking to broaden an International and EC dimension to our learning programmes by creating new EC collaboration, this project will help transform teaching and learning, work-related training and thus lead to the further improvement in outcomes for learners. The project is the first proposal (this is for staff mobility) as part of a four year transformational programme through Erasmus to improve the work-related learning and employability of students in Digital, Creative and Cultural Industries. The creative industries, coupled with the visitor economy reflect upon society and create creative content, graphics, film, sculpture, performance and music that stimulate, enrich and entertain, as well as generate wealth and economic value within society. The arts are an international phenomenon, whereas, to the exception of excellence in arts, most training and development at a secondary/tertiary (Further Education) level is anchored within local institutions. We therefore wish to develop a new European dimension, firstly in teacher training and curriculum design, and subsequently leading towards transnational colloborations with student mobility, touring exhibitions and improved employability for learners.
