CRE8IVE

The aim of Cre8ive is to support innovation in education for youth-at-risk by supporting the CPD of youth workers and education
staff working in this area. Consortium partners believe that there is a gap in the provision of CPD training for professionals working
with marginalized young people where the use of creative tools is concerned. To address this deficit, the project will develop, test
and pilot a suite of accredited train-the-trainer materials that introduce youth workers and education staff to the use of digital
media, storytelling, drama and music for the development of key competences. CPD training will be accredited in Ireland at QQI
Level 6, Minor Award which corresponds to a level 5 short cycle award on the European Qualifications Framework. Cre8ive will
encourage youth workers and educators to harness the potential of these creative tools to support the re-integration of
disadvantaged youth to formal education or employment and their progression as valued members of European society. The new
course-ware will support youth workers and adult educators to make full use of each of these creative areas and validate the
pedagogic veracity of the proposed approach. Cre8ive responds to the challenge of ensuring that youth with a non-traditional
educational history can benefit from innovative pedagogic interventions to acquire the key competences for active citizenship and
personal development.

In addition to the CPD course-ware partners will also provide a tool-kit comprising a range of bespoke embedded-learning and
enquiry-based learning curriculum resources to support the acquisition of social and civic competence, digital competence, cultural
awareness and expression, literacy, numeracy, entrepreneurship and critical thinking.
