Creative Skills Programme/qualification for Early Years practitioners

Since 2013, Starcatchers has been delivering Creative Skills training for Early Years practitioners in Scotland.  Funded by the Scottish Government, this programme offers a range of training sessions from Early Years artists which explore a range of art forms using a playful, open-ended, child centred approach. As evidenced through an independent evaluation undertaken for the pilot programme 2013-15 (Really Useful Knowledge), the training has been proven to deepen understanding of arts and creativity and to help participants integrate knowledge and skills gained into practice.

We are delighted that the Scottish Government has funded this free, innovative training for  Inverclyde, Dundee, Aberdeen and Midlothian in 2016-2017.

We are also launching the Creative Skills in Early Childhood practice SQA qualification, developed using the Creative Skills approach.  The course will be delivered in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College from January 2017, and Glasgow City Council may be able to cover up to 50% of the £500 course fee.
