Hello and welcome to ICEnet, Pete! It's great that you have joined us, and we hope that you will find a lot of useful information here. We are also looking forward to your contributions and we hope you'd be able to share some of your extensive experience.
The partners behind ICEnet were involved in a two-year research project into competencies of creative practitioners working in educational settings to develop creative skills of children and young people. Last year this project came to an end with a number of outcomes, including a self-assessment competency framework for artists, which you might find interesting. You can find more information and all the outcomes on the dedicated page TRaKSforA (Leonardo).
