Caring and Creative Curriculums 

Our 10 year strategy drives our ambition to put Yorkshire on the map (nationally and internationally) for its bold and innovative reimagining of education through creativity and care. Working effectively alongside many committed partners we ensure:

  • more children and young people feel nurtured and supported through the creative and caring experiences that they take part in at school and in community settings
  • the highest quality arts education practices are trained and shared across the region
  • a deeper understanding and awareness about educational inequity is established across the region and creative and caring approaches are used to remove barriers to learning. We deliver this element of our programme through three focussed activities:

Caring and creative curriculums 

Our ambition is to improve creative and cultural education for all children and young people across Yorkshire. We offer specialist training to support teachers to use drama and arts activities across the curriculum. We work directly with children in schools to enhance their curriculum learning through drama, play and story-making and offer creative local history workshops (linked to our heritage programme).

Regional Development Programme 

Chol have a commitment to developing as regional and national leaders in Arts Education and CPDL through practice, research, and partnership working. We are working towards our ten year strategy to put Yorkshire on the map for its Caring and Creative Education. It’s important that we continue to work with National partners to develop, share, and advise on programmes in arts education whilst stepping up to create change regionally. 

Recent partners include Paul Hamlyn Foundation, National Theatre, Young Vic, The Lowry, LCEPs – Evoke, Create Sheffield, Fusion, Imagine Rotherham. 

School & College Residencies 

Annually we collaborate with schools on longer term residencies developing unique collaborative partnerships between Chol artists and teachers in schools across Yorkshire. Chol’s specialist artists work in colleges and schools to develop and share innovative caring and creative practice in curriculums and through additional creative projects. The artists work alongside teachers in the classroom on a weekly basis developing new artistic approaches to teaching and learning for children. The artists also offer a bespoke, research informed Continued Professional Development and Learning (CPDL) programme for all teachers in each school.
