Join our pool of Creative Mentors!
We are looking for individuals to join our pool of Creative Mentors to help us reach the demand for Creative Mentoring across the Midlands region. We welcome applications from across the East and West Midlands, but especially applications from Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Dudley.
What is Creative Mentoring?
The Mighty Creatives, working in partnership with Derbyshire Virtual School and The Amber Factory, will commission suitably qualified Creative Mentors for the provision of a Creative Mentor Support service to identified children and young people who are in need, care experienced, struggling to engage in education or who are at risk of exclusion.
You can find our Service Specification and Supporting Information documents below for you to download and support your application.
Who are our Creative Mentors?
Our pool of Creative Mentors have a range of arts and/or media skills, experience of leading creative learning and a positive, child-centred approach to working with children and young people on a one-to-one basis. Creative Mentors work with children from age 5-19 to build a trusting relationship, introduce creative activities according to the child’s interest and facilitate inspiring experiences to support personal, social and emotional development and educational achievement. We will be commissioning Creative Mentoring to take place on a case-by-case basis and in joining our pool, there is no guarantee for immediate work.
How do I apply?
Applicants are welcome to get in touch for a 1:1 briefing with a member of our Creative Mentor team. These briefings will be no longer than 30 minutes and will support applicants with their application process. To book a briefing if interested, email Emily and Louise at email@example.com.
If you are interested in becoming one of our Creative Mentors at The Mighty Creatives, please submit a completed application form, outlining your experience against the provider specification listed in the Service Specification. This should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1pm on Tuesday 25th January 2022.
