One Day Creative

One Day is a fresh and forward-thinking Creative Education Company, connecting children and learning with creativity and imagination. Our innovative approach to education is the perfect companion for schools looking to enrich the curriculum and complement classroom teaching.

In our experience, children have very different and unique ways of learning and we believe that these individual learning styles should be nurtured and encouraged. Placing children in an environment where they can thrive and feel confident, often leads to successful and happy learning. Our menu of workshops caters for creative learning throughout all Key Stages using Drama, Music, Dance, Fitness and Play.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) 

Summary of Programme delivered in schools (predominantly secondary)

  • Our Enterprise Adviser programme is part of a national network co-funded by LEPs and The Careers & Enterprise Company. The aim is to create powerful, long-lasting connections between businesses, schools and young people to support the future growth of the region.
  • Business volunteers (Enterprise Advisers) provide strategic support and work with senior leaders in school to shape their careers, enterprise and employer engagement strategies.
  • In the Leeds City Region (LCR), we have over 100 Enterprise Advisers and 130 secondary schools engaged with our programme. All are fully supported by Enterprise Coordinators who are employed by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority
  • Evidence shows that 4 or more employer encounters means young people are less likely to become NEET and more likely to secure better jobs.  Since September 2016, we have created 13,830 encounters for young people in our region through the network.
  • Looking forward, we will engage with more schools, businesses and develop an ‘enhanced’ model to build on our Inclusive Growth work to target pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to access 4 or more employer encounters a year. 


  • #techgoals is part of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership's commitment to prepare young people with the skills and knowledge to enter the job market. Digital industries alone account for 23,000 jobs and generate over £671 million for the City Region’s economy. #techgoals is unique to the Leeds City Region and the first of its kind in the UK. It offers development opportunities for teachers and provides a wide range of curricular and extracurricular resources to help young people develop their digital skills for the range of exciting careers opportunities that exist across the City Region. 

The Shape Your Future resource/booklet can be found here alongside posters representing each industry/sector for display purposes.

Teenage Cancer Trust - Why does teenage cancer matter?

In the UK, an average of 2500 young people are diagnosed with cancer every year and this figure is constantly rising.

For many of these young people, their cancer diagnosis will have been delayed, often because young people fail to recognise serious symptoms and therefore avoid seeking help.

What is available?

Teenage Cancer Trust’s FREE education and awareness programme lasts the length of one school period and is ideally delivered to year 10 students.

What is covered in the session?

The presentation covers a range of different points including:

•             What cancer is

•             Common Signs and Symptoms

•             The impact of cancer on a young person

•             Types of Treatment

•             Healthy Living

If you would like more information or if you are happy to go ahead and book please contact Roger on 07718 424397 or email

The Children’s Society – CSE Resources for Gypsy Roma, Traveller communities

As part of an initiative in West Yorkshire, we've been looking at how Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities can keep their young people safe from child sexual exploitation.

It explored the barriers to engagement through traditional agencies and support systems and examined what was needed to ensure that young people from these communities, their parents and carers were aware and informed.

As a result of this, a range of resources were produced to support communities and professionals and carers working with them. These included an animation which was the idea of a group of young people working on the project; an accompanying workbook; and some posters and leaflets translated into the main community languages of Romanian and Slovak.

The initiative has now come to an end but the resources remain available to all those who would like to make use of them. Click on the link for more information.
