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 and wider. Whilst we welcome applications from across the country, we are specifically welcoming applications from the East and West Midlands.

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 in or leaving care who are 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.
