Freelance Arts Award Adviser opportunities – Cultural Citizens programme 2019-20

Are you interested in a freelance job opportunity that introduces young people to exciting cultural and arts experiences, in Liverpool and beyond?

The Sister Gwen Appleton Trust has just awarded funding to the Liverpool Learning Partnership to run phase 3 of our Cultural Citizens Programme. Next academic year we will work with four secondary schools between 30 September 2019 until the end of Summer Term 2020, to support up to 80 students to achieve Bronze or Silver Arts Award. This is part of our role in leading Liverpool’s Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP).

The Cultural Citizens programme targets young people with little or no prior arts and cultural engagement beyond school, who experience social deprivation, cultural isolation and other disadvantages. The programme aims to give students the opportunity to progress in their arts learning and appreciation, developing their confidence, skills and talents.

We are now looking for:

Arts Award Advisers to work with up to four schools

  • Bronze Arts Award Adviser(s) for three schools – fixed fee of £1150 per school
  • Silver Arts Award Adviser for one school – fixed fee of £1450 (reflecting higher number of student guided learning hours)

You can apply for any number of the Arts Award Adviser roles depending on your capacity. We are also prepared to recruit a separate Arts Award Adviser to each school.
