Synergies between public policies and programmes
Please see the subheading 'Cross-sectoral cooperation' in 'Administration and Governance'.
Partnerships between the culture and creative sectors, youth organisations and youth workers
As outlined in the Welsh Government's strategy, Creative learning through the arts (see 'Existence of a national strategy' in the article 'National strategy on creativity and culture for young people' for more information), two main programmes are the focus of their work in this area:
- the All-Wales arts and education programme, which involves schools working with artists and arts, heritage and cultural organisations to complement teaching across the curriculum; the programme has two strands, Regional Arts and Education Networks and Experiencing the Arts (see the subheading 'Cross-sectoral cooperation' in the article on 'Administration and governance' for more information on both of these).
- the Lead Creative Schools Scheme, which aims to foster new ways of working in schools, in order to improve the quality of teaching and learning; the scheme sees creative professionals working with teachers in order to shape programme and curriculum development and better address some of the challenges facing their school.
