Cultural Education in England (The Henley Review)
Source: Department for Culture, Media and Sport/Department for Education (UK)
From the Introduction:
The skills which young people learn from studying Cultural Education subjects help to ensure that the UK has over many years built up a Creative and Cultural Industries sector which is, in many areas, world-beating. There is a clear message from the Creative and Cultural Industries that the education which children and young people receive in school in Creative and Cultural subjects has a direct bearing on feeding into the talent pool for those who take up employment in this sector.
Sustained investment in providing young people with an excellent Cultural Education should form a key pillar of the government‟s strategy for the long- term growth of our Creative and Cultural Industries, both at a national and international level. It is vitally important that there is continued investment in giving the next generation of creative practitioners the tools and training necessary for the UK to continue its position of pre-eminence...
For the purposes of this Review, Cultural Education includes: archaeology, architecture and the built environment, archives, craft, dance, design, digital arts, drama and theatre, film and cinemas, galleries, heritage, libraries, literature, live performance, museums, music, poetry and the visual arts.
