local cultural education partnerships

We work closely with a range of cultural organisations and schools to develop Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs). LCEPs are a response to the Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge, which asks arts & cultural organisations, educational institutions and local authorities to make a difference for children and young people locally. By coming together partnerships can improve the cultural offer locally, share resources, increase investment and be champions for the delivery of cultural education.

partnership investment

Through our partnership investment we will be investing in programmes and projects that reach beyond specific places. We also want to explore, develop and sustain partnerships that reach across different sectors.

derbyshire virtual schools

Creative mentoring is Derbyshire Virtual School’s (Derbyshire County Council)  partnership approach to working with any child in care who is struggling to engage in education or at risk of exclusion or disaffection. Since 2018, we’ve supported this work to develop a pool of creative mentors across Derbyshire and delivered real world projects to help young people develop skills and grow in confidence.

collective outcomes tool

We also want to show the impact we are making through our programmes and projects. The Collective Outcomes Tool aims to gather data from art organisations about their work with schools. This data will be aggregated to produce impact statements about cultural education activity across the East Midlands. Read more about the Tool’s origins here.

collective outcomes tool reports

Working with partners across the region we collect data through the Collective Outcome Tool. This is a simple tool for gathering data from art organisations about their work with schools. We use the data to produce reports about cultural education activity across the East Midlands.
