The 4Cs of Recovery – supporting curriculum thinking

In this keynote presentation Gary introduces the Real Ideas Organisation’s recovery curriculum support and approach.
Real Ideas has a strong history of supporting arts, culture, creativity and digital opportunity as part of a rich school provision.

This session introduces and explores our approach through 4Cs:

Creativity – shaping opportunities for young people to apply knowledge, skills and intuition to imagine, conceive, express and make.
Culture – building the rich cultural capital around us into the curriculum and, crucially, taking a school’s individual context as the starting point.
Connection – exploring immersive, responsive, tech-savvy digital ideas, kit and access to the world of work.
Community – linking to real, socially enterprising, place-based opportunities, funding and expertise, with schools placed firmly at the heart of their communities.
