31 The Calls
CapeUK is an independent research and development agency focusing on creativity and learning. We work with partners to explore and develop innovative approaches to teaching and learning which prepare children and young people for the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
We have three main aims:
to develop the creative potential and capacities of young people
to transform teaching and learning by placing creativity at the heart of the curriculum
to develop approaches to leadership and management which support creativity
To achieve this, we explore innovative approaches to teaching and learning in both the formal and informal education sectors. We distil learning and help partners refine their thinking by initiating communities of inquiry that generate and share ideas and practice, often collaborating with national and international networks and agencies.
We work with a wide range of partners including schools, museums and galleries, creative and community organisations, businesses, universities, children's services and school improvement services as well as individual practitioners.
We work in four main areas:
Continuing Professional Development
Project Development and Evaluation
Action Research programmes
