It is always highly rewarding to help learners develop their own creative identity and is inspiring to be part of that art and design process, seeing innovative ideas surface. I have been excited by the prospect of developing an exciting creative curriculum teaching fashion and textiles that ties in with both the Creative Mentor Foundation ethos and my own – providing inclusive education for all learners. Being patient, allowing learners to work at their own pace and choose to self-direct their own learning whilst allowing learners the creative freedom to explore their ideas is fundamental in order to create an active teaching and learning environment.
