Artists, Collaborators and Communicators: new research reveals the variety of creative talent amongst UK teachers

At BETT 2011 we launched our online ‘Creative ID’ quiz, to give teachers a better understanding of their creative type, and how they can help students reach their own creative potential.

We had people turning out in droves to take the quiz – more than a thousand at BETT itself! We’re currently at 1,305 quiz plays and counting!

Well we’ve analysed the results, and I can reveal that it’s the Artists who are leading the way– a quarter of teachers who took the quiz are visually creative.

Collaborators (like me) are a close second – a quarter of us are great at working with people to develop and cultivate ideas.

In comparison, there were very few Wordsmiths – only 8% use written words to demonstrate their creativity.

Communicators and Visionaries are hovering in the middle of the creativity league table at the moment – a fifth are good at presenting work to others in a creatively-appealing and impactful way, whilst 18% are ‘big picture’ creatives.

The quiz is still live, so grab a coffee and take 5 minutes to find out your creative type!
