Instrumental Teachers Wanted
The Leicester-Shire Music and Cultural Trust is a new charity set up to support all young people in Leicester and Leicestershire in their music making and learning, and hence everyone working to this end. We are looking to develop a pool of music tutors who would be available to be called upon as and when opportunities for work arise. The work could include covering for absent staff teaching Whole Class Instrumental lessons to school classes or teaching groups within targeted long and short term projects. Music teachers within any discipline are encouraged to apply, and we are particularly looking for teachers with experience teaching instrumental music to children in whole class settings, those from challenging circumstances (including Looked After Children) and those with Special Educational Needs.
Contracts for services for successful applicants will be available and the teaching and coaching rate will be around £30 per hour all inclusive.
If you are interested in joining this pool, please send an up to date CV with the name of two referees, together with a statement of no more than 200 words describing what you are able to offer. Candidates will need to undertake a short observation in a class setting and be interviewed. Appointments to the pool will be dependent on the relevant checking processes.
Expressions of interest should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
