Creativity is becoming an increasingly sought after commodity in the 21st Century. Despite this awareness, there is still a lack in teaching creativity and problem solving skills to students during their educational years. Couple that with teachers being inundated with curriculum, administration, and standardised testing demands, opportunities to include creativity teaching within the curriculum seem very limited. This project explores leadership training programs at secondary level, and the inclusion of creativity and problem solving skills within these programs. The literature review examines creativity teaching within the Australian educational context and the project then focusses on developing a curriculum to teach creativity as part of student leadership development within schools.
