University of Nottingham

CCE has worked closely with the School of Education at the University for several years. Professors Thomson and Hall have authored some of the most important commentaries on the work and impact of Creative Partnerships, including the pivotal Signature Pedagogies report.

In 2012, CCE arranged to transfer the full archive of the Creative Partnerships programme in England to the University, where the Creative Partnerships database has been made available online.  CCE is working in collaboration with Professors Pat Thomson and Christine Hall from Nottingham University to fully catalogue and better exploit the learning from the huge store of database information held about the initial CP programme that ran throughout England from 2002-2011.

It is expected that the archive will become an unrivalled research tool for those seeking to understand the impact of creativity within schools.
