LARC is committed to a programme of workforce development across the whole cultural sector that will implement new models of partnership engagement with the education providers in the City Region (Schools, Colleges and Universities) to ensure both the sustainability of the sector and to grow and develop future practitioners and artists One of the successes of the LARC collaborative work to date has been the Liverpool Creative Apprenticeship scheme. The programme was initiated in 2007 and through the programme creative and cultural organisations have been supported to develop the skills and expertise to provide high quality training and development for young people. The Liverpool creative apprenticeship programme continues to operate and now runs on a rolling recruitment basis. Since the inception of the programme 24 separate organisations, covering the public, private and voluntary sectors have recruited a total of 34 apprentices.

Partnerships with Higher Education Institutions

LARC COMMISSIONS REPORT FROM IMPACTS 08 ON THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN LIVERPOOL CULTURAL ORGANISATIONS AND THE HIGHER EDUCATION SECTOR LARC released a report in June 2009, mapping the relationships between the Liverpool cultural sector and the higher education sector. The research was commissioned from Impacts 08 to support LARC’s objective to strengthen strategic collaboration between the higher education and cultural sectors in the Liverpool City Region. It is based on survey returns from 15 arts and cultural organisations, including the 8 members of Liverpool Arts and Regeneration Consortium (LARC) and seven other arts and cultural providers .   The report covers a variety of areas of collaboration, looking at both recent and current partnership activity, and outlining significant forthcoming activity and aspiration.  It is offered as a contribution to inform the debate in Liverpool and further afield, in the belief that Liverpool is well placed to establish a nationally significant model for the breadth and depth of partnership between its cultural and higher education institutions. The report was launched at a conference organised by Culture Campus Liverpool, 25 June 2009    Culture Campus Liverpool is a unique partnership between the universities and some of the major visual arts and media organisations in Liverpool, promoting cross-sector collaboration, research and networking. The conference aimed to provide an opportunity for a productive dialogue between the cultural and higher education sectors on the key themes, challenges and possibilities of collaborative research, graduate retention and the development of a postgraduate culture over the next five years and beyond.   It was attended by over 100 delegates, including the Vice-Chancellors of all three Liverpool higher education institutions. Main Findings It is clear that there is already substantial engagement between arts and cultural organisations in Liverpool and Higher Education Institutions, both in Liverpool and around the world.   34 UK HEIs were named by survey respondents as partners in delivery of work or networks, or in the context of more informal relationships, plus a further 10 non-UK institutions. Many of the projects and partnerships referred to in the report are well-established or emerge from long-term relationships and collaborative thinking. In addition, there is a real breadth of disciplines displayed across the different initiatives and projects. Liverpool benefits from having three universities with many complementary strengths and specialisms, as well as from the concentration and profile of its arts and cultural sector, including national institutions, and one with an Independent Research Organisation status...
