Cultural learning & participation Officer Level 3

Planning, organising, and co-ordinating artistic, cultural education & community engagement projects.

What is a Cultural learning & participation Officer?

The activities that are planned, organised and co-ordinated by the CLPO, typically include teaching arts, culture and heritage subjects, creative workshops, visits, talks, performances, festivals, events and digital arts, using online content and social networks as appropriate. Activities may be accessed in cultural venues such as galleries, museums and theatres, online and other settings for example schools, hospitals, prisons and community settings such as care homes.

These activities act as a vehicle to enable learning, skills development, wellbeing, social inclusion and community engagement. They use arts and culture to enhance and improve learning about wider subjects e.g. teamwork, communication, resilience and may use activities that include dance, music, drama or provide curriculum resources in the arts.

CPLO’s are often highly skilled in their own creative practice: art, dance, design, drama, music, writing etc. This apprenticeship enables them to learn how to share that creative practice with others. They will learn how to work to a brief, a tight budget, a strict deadline and manage the expectations and experiences of participants, partners and funders.
