‘We need a community approach to learning. In the past, libraries were a learning bridge between the school and the home, particularly for many disadvantaged young people. Let’s see how imaginative we can be in creating rich community learning’.
Professor Graham Donaldson, 2020
Reimagining the curriculum through innovative community partnerships.
Changing Culture, Curriculum and Pedagogy.
In 2020, Tybed convened a focus group on behalf of UNESCO’s consultation on the Futures of Education and were later invited to join other education leaders at the HundrED global summit. One of the key themes emerging from this work is the idea of embracing the learning that happens everywhere.
With the introduction of an ambitious new curriculum in Wales in 2022, we have an opportunity to pioneer new, creative, and sustained approaches to partnerships within the community. However, if we are to fully realise the vision and develop a first-class education system, we also need to invest in our educators, therefore, these community initiatives offer an innovative response to meeting both the professional learning needs of your school and opening the door to a range of expertise, creative ideas, authentic and meaningful learning for your children.
The learning doesn't just go in one direction either, the community partners are also being challenged, developing new knowledge, skills and experiences.
We're currently working with Ysgol Trefnant, a village community group of older residents called ConneXions together with an Architectural firm to explore new ways of supporting each other and working together, for the benefit of all.
Monthly Creative Conversations
Tybed and House of Imagination invite you to imagine the future in order to inspire the present.
In these sessions, we focus on a different theme each month with our guest speakers. Check out our social media pages for up to date information and details on how to register.
Professional Learning Courses
Our courses are a little bit different, we practice what we preach, we can't ask you to innovative if we're unprepared to be innovative too.
We design each course around the principles of curiosity, critical-thinking, creativity and collaboration.
Various dates are available throughout the year and we're also available for staff INSET, adapting our offer for your setting and school needs.
