Teaching resources for creative and cultural education
A new online database is now available for schools to find the best teaching resources from arts and cultural organisations nationwide.
The Teaching Resources for Creative and Cultural Education website was collated by CapeUK on behalf of Arts Council England with input from some of the nation’s finest arts organisations, museums and education specialists. They are designed to generate creative new ideas and inspire teachers of subjects at Key Stage 1 – 5 across the national curriculum. The resources cover the sciences, languages and humanities as well as dance, art and design, theatre studies, drama, music and PE. You can search for what you need by subject area or Key Stage and can choose either free or paid-for content.
The selection of materials will be reviewed regularly and any ideas for additional content should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Artsbox is a free digital space and app for children and young people who are working towards their Arts Award or simply want to safely record their arts experiences in one place and share them with others.
Artsbox helps teachers to support young people and assess their progress. Young people can upload video, audio, photographs and documents to record their creative journey. The free Artsbox app means they can collate and share arts experiences on the move. Young people working towards their Arts Award can use Artsbox to collect evidence and create a digital portfolio.
Arts Award is a range of nationally recognised qualifications that support young people to grow as artists and arts leaders, developing creativity, leadership and communication skills. Arts Award is open to anyone aged up to 25, and embraces all interests and backgrounds. Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England working with 10 regional Bridge organisations.
