MAKE Learn Report and Resources Launched
MAKE Manifesto and Craft Scotland have launched MAKE Learn - three research documents titled Craft and Making in Education in Scotland Today: Research Report, Key Findings and Recommendations, alongside a set of resources, developed with makers, for schools.
We are pleased to share the findings of MAKE Learn, a partnership between MAKE and Craft Scotland designed to strengthen Scotland’s craft sector through a review of the provision and development of craft education within Scotland’s primary and secondary schools and beyond.
We are also delighted that our Modern Makers programme is featured as a case study, one of ten case studies were produced as part of the MAKE Learn research project.
MAKE Learn’s ambition is for "a quality craft and making education for everyone in Scotland". In 2020, MAKE Learn commissioned Rosemary James-Beith, led by Craft Scotland, to review the provision and development of craft education within Scotland’s primary and secondary schools and beyond.
The findings and recommendations show how best to support the development of the craft education sector for the benefit of all, create high-quality craft and making opportunities for all and support young people to reach their full potential within craft.
Alongside the research project ran a Pilot Schools Project that focused on the value of craft education within and beyond the school setting. This project was hosted in early 2021, led by MAKE with maker Soizig Carey.
