What do we do?
Artis helps children achieve at school by integrating the
performing arts throughout their learning. Artis creates a very
different experience from a typical classroom by linking music,
drama and dance to curriculum learning as facilitated by performing
arts specialists (Artis Specialists). Working as an Artis
Specialist gives practitioners a platform to use their creativity
within an educational context, offering training and support along
the way. We attract the best practitioners because we respect and
nourish artistic talent.
What are we looking for?
Artis Specialists to join our thriving team: highly skilled,
imaginative and versatile performing arts specialists who can
commit to delivering our creative curriculum on an ongoing basis
across the academic year in primary schools. Artis Specialists
deliver anything from half a day to 4 days a week, returning to the
same school(s) each week throughout the academic year.
We welcome applications from performers from a broad
range of backgrounds; and we are particular interested in hearing
from you if you have a music background.
The ideal candidate will have experience and a passion for
working with children in an educational setting and be open to
delivering holistically. We're looking for practitioners with a
flair for communication, who are open to new challenges and are
inspired to nurture creativity in children.
It is essential that candidates are available to commit to
ongoing, regular work in order to be considered for this role. We
are currently looking for Specialists who are able to work in
either London and the Home Counties or Leeds - a willingness to
travel within your region is essential.
If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
