The Live Skills project is an Erasmus+ project co-ordinated by the British Council, with partners in Northern Ireland (Belfast Metropolitan College), Greece, Romania and Bulgaria. Live Skills focusses on developing innovative, evidence based, curricular and work based learning for the live performance and audio visual sector. The project has delivered over 200 learning materials which are free to use under creative commons licence  - and we want to share our learning from the curriculum development process and the potential for the learning materials and research outputs to be used within the UK, and globally.
