Creative primary teacher required

4 hours paid creative development of environment workshops

We are in the early stages of creating a workshop day for primary schools investigating the environmental issues our world is facing.

The project will use drama techniques, literature and poetry (and perhaps music, movement and other artforms) to explore the issues and empower children to be part of making a difference. The day will culminate in the children sharing what they have learnt with one another, in a sharing performance that involves up to 210 children.

We are seeking an experienced (qualified) Primary School teacher with particular interest in teaching environmental issues to become part of our creative team in the research and development phase of this project.  Together we will develop the structure and scope of the workshop, and begin to consider the content of the individual sessions.

We would love to hear from you if:

  • you have experience exploring these issues at primary level, and a good knowledge of how relevant subjects are taught across EYFS, KS1 and KS2;

  • you are creative and good at sharing your ideas;

  • you will enjoy aiding the creation of and developing ideas from the rest of the group;

  • you will enjoy working with a small group of other teachers and drama facilitators.

Initially we expect to spend four hours developing ideas together, spread across either two twilight sessions or a half day session, timed to fit in with everyone’s availability. You will receive a fee of £100 for your contribution, plus travel expenses if coming from outside the M25, and if appropriate we could deliver the completed workshop day in your school.

If we all enjoy working together we expect there will be lots of future opportunities to collaborate.
