This suite of resources promotes co-construction of learning as a partnership between teaching staff and their students and, when appropriate, with residential providers. Co-construction and co-design are vehicles for the shared development and delivery of creative learning and investing in this approach is particularly valuable in the planning of residentials. Young people value residentials highly and welcome the opportunity to contribute as planners and designers rather than simply participants.
