Who is involved in Local Cultural Education Partnerships & how can my organisation get involved?

Cultural Education Partnerships generally seek to have representation from relevant stakeholders in their place which may include: the local authority, cultural organisations, education settings (schools, Early Years settings, Further Education, Higher Education), Music Education Hubs and the youth sector. Some partnerships will also involve representatives from local employers, commercial creative industries and organisations with specialisms including health and planning where there might be an overlap in aims.

The exact structure of and stakeholders represented in each Cultural Education Partnership varies; both structure and representation are locally relevant and based on the cultural education landscape in each place.

If you are not currently involved in a Cultural Education Partnership but are interested in developing one, joining our Connected Network is a good starting point.

You can also find some examples of the different structures and approaches used by Cultural Education Partnerships in this report on the Cultural Education Partnership Pilot Study, and through resources in the Discover and Build section of our Powerful Partnerships Library.
