Arts Learning Consorteum, Thinking outside the Bacc

Following on from their hugely successful ‘Ebacc again’ event in October, the Arts Learning Consorteum are hosting an event that will explore the ways in which schools are responding to the Ebacc, and the implications for cultural organisations.

At the event, which will take place on 3 February 2016 at Childwall Sports and Science Academy in Liverpool, delegates will hear from three schools that are standing firm in their commitment to the arts, each with a different approach and stance on the Ebacc. There will be a strong focus on partnerships with arts and cultural organisations.

Drawing on the ALC’s audience’s experience of other schools and contexts, delegates will consider the implications of the Ebacc for students now and for the creative economy and cultural landscape in the future.

The programme for the event will include:

  • A tour of Childwall Academy – including fantastic murals painted by students throughout the building
  • Presentations by:Pete Ward, Childwall’s Director of SMSC/Art; Steve Cook, Assistant Headteacher and Director of Performing Arts at Formby High;John Pout, Headteacher at Rainhill High School Media Arts College; Learning staff at National Museums Liverpool
  • Discussions and networking

This event is aimed at cultural and arts organisations, music/arts hub staff & freelance arts educators who wish to gain greater awareness of how and where they can support schools, either with their current approach to partnership working, or by adapting their offer to meet changing needs.

Teachers, school leaders, teacher educators, teaching students:
Gather practical ideas and persuasive arguments for maintaining a rich arts offer in the face of the Ebacc.

The event is free to ALC individual members, with two free places per member organisation, & any additional places are £30. For teaching students (from member HEIs) places cost £10, & for non-members the event is £60
