It is essential that we empower young people to turn their ideas into action and their aspirations into reality, so that they’re best prepared to create opportunities and make the most of what the future holds. At the RSA, we believe schools should develop the creative capacities of both their learners and educators to achieve this – one way in which we support this is by working with the RSA Family of Academies.
Creativity accounts for 26 million jobs in the UK, and it is predicted that by 2030 we will need 1 million new creative careers to ensure the stability of our economy. As such, employers around the world are consistently asserting the need for a more creative workforce, and for this reason we must help schools to do more to harness the creativity of their young people.
But how do we truly enable the development of this important skill for the 21st century world of work? Below are six points of guidance based on the 12 principles from our report on giving schools the power to create. Take a look and see how these tips could help you to deliver creativity in your classroom and get students job-ready:
