We are advertising for a freelance learning session leader at the Harris.

The Harris wants to recruit experienced and engaging educators to deliver school sessions on a freelance basis. We hope to take on 3 people to join our team to lead visits for schools in the museum as and when required.

We aim to provide a high quality service, with activities to appeal to a range of learning styles. The role will entail teaching using active learning approaches such as object handling, drama and delivering art workshops. The vast majority of our visits are from primary schools but an ability to lead sessions with secondary and college students would be an advantage.

Successful applicants will receive training (£30 per session)
