ABOUT US

The Creativity Works Preston Production Centre is based upon the Danish Production school model.

CWP offers an alternative form of education to people of all ages who need or prefer to learn in a different way to the traditional education system that is predominantly academically based to one that is project-oriented and provides individualistic tuition. The crux of the learning environment and pedagogy is learning through doing; practical work and the solving of tasks in a working community aimed a real production and marketing of goods and services. We offer bespoke training courses in Hair & Beauty, Food & Nutrition, Teaching & learning, Media and Music, Sport and maths & English.

We offer a pre 16 programme to referral agencies such as Schools, Lancashire County Council Missing Education team, Youth Offending team and any agency responsible for young people aged 14-16, with places available for up to 40 young people. We offer a post 16 Programme with places available for up to 50, students.

ABOUT US

Wonderful Things provides innovative extra-curricular activities to children, delivered out of school hours, but within the safe environment of primary schools and local venues. Project Managers ensure a particularly wide spectrum of themes to the activities, so that children are inspired and motivated to engage in challenging activities that they would not usually have access to.

Activities range from the arts (eg: Pirate Dance Day, Theatre Day, being a DJ) to science and technology (eg: Lego Day, Forensic Science Day, Skills Day) to the outdoors (eg: Forest Day, Crazy Sports Day) the practical (Baking Day, Journalism Workshops) and the unusual (Parliamentary Day, Didgeridoo Day!) These opportunities inspire the children and feed into their social and academic attainment, and the impact of this has been commented on by both parents and educators.
