Exploring professional development opportunities at Essex Dance Teachers Network © Rachel Cherry 2013
Royal Opera House Bridge works in a number of ways to develop opportunities for children and young people across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and North Kent including:
A third of our budget is allocated for co-investment. We support projects that work with children and young people in areas of low cultural engagement and use the funds to attract additional investment.
We support the emergence of new networks and help strengthen existing ones, looking at professional development and local collaborations.
Research and Advocacy
We commission research into local needs and opportunities within the cultural and education sector. Identifying and celebrating good practice we then work strategically to strengthen the local infrastructure that will sustain it.
We have funds from the department of education to work directly with teaching schools and their alliances, developing creative learning in schools and fostering relationships with the local cultural sector.
Training and Conferences
We run and support a number of events focused on training and development and sharing good practice.
