Employability and Creativity Skills across Learning Award

The Scottish Education Awards recognise early learning and childcare settings and schools that have developed a vibrant and progressive culture and climate of continuous innovation. There are 15 award categories in total.

 From 2013 onwards the Awards featured a Creative Learning Award category with notable shortlisted winners from primary, early learning and childcare, and secondary schools. Last year we took the awards a step further by embedding creative teaching, creative learning, and creative improvement in all of the award categories, and with a focus on creativity skills within a new Employability and Creativity Skills across Learning category.

You may wish to submit a nomination or encourage nominations from your authority/area for this award which recognises establishments that promote the development of employability and creativity skills for pupils and staff in partnership with the wider school community across all contexts and settings where young people are learning.

Find out more and make nominations by 6pm on Thursday 14 February here:

Please read the guidance notes incorporated into this page which explain what information should be provided.
