Reference: PE11254487
Salary: £125 - £180 per day
Job Published: 22 days ago
Protocol Education are looking to recruit a qualified Art Teacher for a secondary SEMH provision in the Kirklees area.

Rather than following a traditional curriculum, the setting works towards students gaining qualifications around the Arts Award. This is a system of learning which has bronze, silver and gold tiers and focusses more on the contemporary and practical elements of art, such as photography, furniture restoration and crafts that may lead to higher employment opportunities. As such, the successful applicant will ideally have an understanding of how the Arts Award is structured, but more importantly should be innovative, adaptable and highly creative. The ability to support learners in a person centred manner is crucial.

Arts Award's principles
* to offer learning and qualifications which support individual creative development in any setting
* to place young people at the heart of the Arts Award process
* to increase young people's experience and understanding of arts practitioners and cultural organisations
* to embrace new art forms and technologies
* to reach the widest possible range of young people

If you would like to discuss this role in greater detail, please send your CV and a short covering letter and I will be in contact shortly. We require all candidates to provide proofs of qualification, right to work, proof of address and also have an enhanced DBS certificate maintained on the update service.
