Diving into a Creative Learning Partnership (CLP) project for the first time can be daunting! Even if you’re a dab hand at collaborative practice, every partnership is a new experience. So, before your team sets off on this adventure, take some time together to build your roadmap using the CLP Induction Modules.
Work your way through four induction modules below, referring to the Further Resources in your CLP Team planning sessions
Module One - CLP Induction
What is a Creative Learning Partnership?
Let’s look at the CLP partnership model, your CLP team and how collaborative practice can create a richer experience than can be achieved alone!
CLP Admin Essentials
What are the considerations for successfully running a CLP project? Here we’ll unpack the nuts and bolts of project administration for schools and creative partners.
- Map Roles and Responsibilities using the Venn Diagram and accompanying list
- Use the CLP Planning Tool 1 - Are we ready to partner? - to identify drivers, strengths, and gaps
- Identify any challenges and the strategies you will employ
- The CLP Checklist is KEY! Partners review together to check you’ve covered everything
- Documentation specifications for acquittal reporting
- Use CLP Planning Tool 5 to map out your plan
Module Two - Neon Stories - A Case Study
See how partners Western English Language School, Footscray Community Arts Centre and The Indirect Object navigated their way through a CLP project in 2020.
Neon Stories - a Teacher's Story
Module Three - Your Concept - an Artistic Framework
The artistic or creative concept is the idea at the heart of your project. It is the foundation for everything you do!
A good concept is like an ‘elevator pitch’ – snappy, interesting and easily understood, but open enough for many possibilities. It is a statement of what the creative exploration is all about to engage participants and audience alike.

Words with Wings – A Curriculum Case Study
Integrating curriculum that’s a ‘natural fit’ is easy! The CLP team from Point Cook P-9 College share how this print-based environmental art and storytelling project was used to weave student's family stories of migration with those of the migratory shorebirds that depend on Point Cook’s local habitat.
