Andrew is currently
working for Cape UK, a charitable organisation funded through the
Arts Council who believe in the value of the arts as a way of
motivating children to enjoy the education experience and as a
consequence raise academic standards in schools.
They are briefed to
support and promote arts activities across the whole of the
Yorkshire and Humberside region, including North and North East
Lincolnshire in order to improve children's access to, and quality
of, arts and cultural opportunities. As the Arts Council Bridge
Organisation for the area we particularly champion applications for Artsmark and Arts Awards.
Andrew's role in the organisation is to encourage schools to achieve Artsmark status and support projects in groups of schools which can
help them achieve this aim. The work involves giving presentations
to groups Headteachers about the charity's work, talking to arts
providers about developing and supporting projects and supporting
training and applications for the Artsmark and Arts Awards.
