Creativity is increasingly recognised as an essential higher order skill for learning, life and work. As such, the foundations of our approach to teaching and learning are rooted in creativity. We believe we need to prepare our young people for life and work in an increasingly uncertain and rapidly changing economic and social environment. As part of a suite of higher order skills, creativity can help learners not only survive, but to thrive in our fast-changing world. Creative skills help learners to be;
Motivated and ambitious for change
Confident in their capacities and validity of their own viewpoints
Able to transfer their creativity skills to other contexts
Able to lead and work well with others
