The main aim of the Camden Cultural Commissioning Model is to facilitate partnerships between schools and creative organisations to develop innovative projects that support school improvement priorities.

19 schools and colleges, 21 creative and cultural organisations, 11 school partners, 11 creative partners, and 550 young people have participated in the model. Methods used included surveys, focus groups, quantitative data, interviews, learning walks, mentoring training, CPD opportunities, and partner meetings.

The Camden Cultural Commissioning Model enabled schools and creative and cultural organisations to develop a range of new partnerships, resulting in young people benefiting from creative projects.

The findings suggest that the Camden Cultural Commissioning Model has been effective in enabling schools and cultural partners to develop innovative projects that support school improvement priorities, and has provided teachers with CPD opportunities and knowledge exchange opportunities.
