Course content

Creative Practices in Education is an advanced degree course for graduates and a wide range of professionals who want to develop or enhance their skills and knowledge as a creative worker within a professional context.

This is an advanced degree course for graduates and professionals who want to develop or enhance their skills and knowledge as a creative worker within a professional context. We aim to encourage the exploration of creativity, and ask practitioners to engage and consider their own practice.

Creative practices are at the core of all professional fields where people are engaged in learning. This includes those working as teachers and lecturers in schools, colleges and universities, but also those working in the arts, health, social care, justice, heritage, sport and leisure and organisations in the public, private and third sector.

This programme offers a rich professional development opportunity for such professionals and to date has included, school teachers , nurses, lecturers, business leaders, FA sports coaches.

Having a direct link between practice and theory between the arts, education and the professions is an innovative element of the course. Staffing is combined across academic faculties, providing you with the opportunity to enhance your subject knowledge. The interdisciplinary elements of the course will allow you to draw on expertise in participatory drama and performance, fine art, dance, music, sport and PE and organisational learning within a professional context.

We also host a module at the Tate Liverpool gallery.
