A commitment to education underpins all of Creative Scotland’s objectives. Creativity permeates Scottish education policy through the Curriculum for Excellence and has a particularly strong emphasis on creativity and the expressive arts. We will continue to work with partners to deliver Scotland’s Creative Learning Plan.
Please also see our latest publication ‘Scotland’s Creative Learning Plan’. This publication celebrates a national partnership that is working to support Scotland’s Creative Learning Plan, and includes details of our vision, aims and workstreams.
Brewstometer - online creativity tool
One of the actions from Scotland’s Creative Learning Plan was to develop an online creativity tool, the Brewstometer. The Brewstometer introduces the principles of creativity and helps learners reflect upon and evaluate any creative experience they had recently, this could include a lesson, a workshop, a performance, a gallery visit or project.
Brewstometer has also been designed to be used to feedback on creative practitioners working in education, who would like to be included in a directory of quality assured creative partners available via the Creativity Portal. For more information, please visit Brewstometer.org.uk
The Creativity Portal
The Creativity Portal has been developed as a partnership between Education Scotland and Creative Scotland in order to create a collaborative environment that aims to encourage educators to place creativity at the heart of their practice. It's a space for information, inspiration and collaboration and encourages partnerships between educators and culture practitioners in order to enrich young people’s learning experiences.
