Taught at our Riverside Campus in Chester, 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.

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.

Why Study Creative Practices in Education with us?

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

What will I learn?

You will have the opportunity to pursue practical individual projects, in which you will study the creative process and how work might be documented for dissemination and use in future professional contexts. This may include artistic practice, but also artful inquiry, encouraging investigation and research into an emerging field of work and study.

Your creative practice would not be limited to traditional arts subjects – for example, a humanities teacher or rugby coach could enhance their practice through creative engagement.

How will I be taught?

Workshops, seminars, lectures and specialist facilities across our faculties encourage the exploration of ideas, in a wide variety of practice-based disciplines.

Modules focus on the professional and theoretical contexts of process and/or performance of: drama, fine art, dance, music, and sport and PE, including research methods; they also encourage an interrogation of personal and peer practice. The modules mostly run as weekend schools on Friday evening and all day Saturday.
Contact hours are two hours on Fridays and six and a half hours on Saturdays.

How will I be assessed?

The MA in Creative Practices in Education defines assessment as a process that appraises an individual’s knowledge, understanding, abilities or skills. The course assesses not only academic skills but also other skills and competencies, including developing advanced skills as creative practitioners, performers, performance makers and visual artists.

The range of assessment approaches includes a combination of practical and written assessments. Assessment methods across the MA have been selected to enable students to develop their knowledge and skills of creative professional practice using an appropriate critical and analytical framework within which to situate and evaluate their own concepts and creative and professional practice.

Assessing and understanding community needs to provide modes of delivery and educational content that improves levels of attainment and life chances, is the structural and thematic rationale of our course. This perspective is developed in two related areas: nationally, motivated by the increasing independence of schools; and internationally, particularly in developing countries, motivated by globalisation.
