Creative Links Programme

The Creative Links Programme is a key initiative of the Scottish Arts Council Education Department. Creative Links Officers work at a strategic level to develop high quality arts practice and creativity in education across Scotland.

From Shetland to Dumfries

There are currently 24 Creative Links Officers; 19 in local authorities from Shetland to Dumfries and Galloway and five in national organisations.

The national organisations with Creative Links Officers are:

Young Scot
YouthLink Scotland
Children in Scotland
The Scottish Adult Learning Partnership

Additional Funding

Additional funding has been agreed to extend the network to each of the 32 local authority education departments by 2007. 

Making a difference

Creative Links Officers have made a significant difference to the development of arts and creativity in education in local authorities and across Scotland:

  • engaging the professional arts sector in schools and informal learning contexts;
  • demonstrating how the arts and creativity can meet educational targets and add value to curriculum delivery and
  • developing arts education strategies for their areas.

Boosting revenue

The officers have also brought additional funding to the arts within their education authorities with up to a £4000 return for every £1 invested initially by the Scottish Arts Council.
