Salary: £30.47 per hour – £31.97 per hour  (dependent on teaching qualification)

The Mary Ward Centre is looking for applications from arts and crafts tutors who have a passion for their subject and can bring interesting and innovative ideas to our community outreach programme. We are interested in textiles, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media jewellery, and any other innovative craft ideas where a high-quality end product can be achieved. You will be working mainly in the East London – Newham and Tower Hamlets with some potential to work in Southwark, Camden and Islington.

Widening the reach of our adult education programme has always been a key part of the Mary Ward Centre’s ethos. We work in partnership with community groups and organisations across Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, Islington, Camden and Southwark. Our partnerships take place in community centres, schools, sheltered accommodation, older people’s centres, hostels and health projects, to offer a rich variety of courses.   Our aim is to provide education and learning opportunities for those who have been traditionally excluded from mainstream education, and/or who may have a negative experience of formal education.

We are particularly interested in tutors who can work in East London. If appointed, you will become part of a pool of sessional Widening Participation tutors who deliver short courses in local community settings, in response to local community needs and interests. Our Outreach could be one off tasters or short courses running weekly and lasting 4– 6 weeks.

How to Apply: Please read the full job description and person specification and send in your completed application form and recruitment monitoring form to recruitment@marywardcentre.ac.uk

Deadline: The deadline to submit application forms is Monday 19th February 2024 at midnight.
