Creativity, emotional intelligence, critical thinking are just some of the skills named by the World Economic Forum as qualities needed to succeed in the 21st century. In his latest blog, Andrew talks about the value of a performing arts education in supporting the development of these transferrable skills needed in the future. Following the first successful year of our enhanced performing arts curriculum in collaboration with The Juilliard School, Nord Anglia Education conducted a survey to evaluate the impact on our students. The results evidence the importance of an arts education in the age of robots and automation.
