In year 1 of the Penryn Creativity Collaborative, we set out to Question, Challenge and Explore, working towards creating a Preparing for a Creative Future framework. Through explorative research across our learning community, we explored three questions: Why are creative skills needed in a changing workforce? What creative skills are needed to be developed by Cornish students to become better prepared? How do we best prepare teachers for Teaching for Creativity? From Spring 2022, working alongside the expertise of Associate Professor Kerry Chappell, and Ursula Crickmay from the University of Exeter, we leaped into a range of explorative research methods: a literature review, a business and cultural partners survey, a range of focus groups, and interviews to explore approaches to Teaching and Learning across the Penryn Partnership. We will be publishing our Year 1 report during autumn 2022, and look forward to sharing our findings with you.
