Report on the Impact of Creative Partnerships

A recent report highlighting the positive impacts of Creative Partnerships may have come too late as, unsurprisingly in the current political and financial climate, funding is likely to be withdrawn with the programme ending after this academic year.

The independent research from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) reveals the Creative Partnerships programme will generate the equivalent of £15.30 of economic benefits for every £1 of investment. This equates to nearly £4 billion net positive benefit for the UK economy.

‘The Costs and Benefits of Creative Partnerships’ report was commissioned by national charity Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE) to analyze how its work with learners, parents, schools and teachers has impacted on the wider UK economy. PricewaterhouseCoopers has analysed CCE’s existing large-scale national evidence and considered impacts of the programme, including:
  • the premium associated by gaining five good GCSEs
  • the avoided social costs of crime and truancy
  • the improved teacher morale from being involved in Creative Partnerships leading to higher retention rates.
