The Lyceum’s Creative Learning Department is seeking up to two drama artists with demonstrable experience of working with schools and primary-age children to deliver a year-long Theatre in Residence pilot project in up to two primary schools.

The project has been developed in consultation with schools, and will see a drama artist placed in a primary school for a full academic year to:

– Support the development of teachers’ skills in using drama and expressive arts practices in classroom settings.
– Develop an archive of drama-based teaching resources linked to the Curriculum for Excellence.
– Increase drama provision in the school through the delivery of practical sessions with pupils.

Up to two primary schools will be involved in the pilot, and we are looking to recruit up to two drama artists to deliver the project. Each artist will be placed in one school each and must have experience of developing resources and CLPL events as well as practical drama delivery.

The role is offered on a fixed term, part-time basis of three days per week (September 2021 – early July 2022) which we generally expect to consist of the equivalent of two days delivery and one day admin/planning, but the demands of the project, particularly over the Autumn 2021 period, will require more intense periods of working.

The project is supported by Baillie Gifford and the Ellem Foundation.

Salary: £22,000 – £24,000 per annum (pro rata) 3 days per week.
Hours: up to 21 hours per week (September 2021 – early July 2022) with the general expectation that this would consist of up to two days in school and one day reserved for planning/meeting.
Please see the Application Pack for a detailed description of expected termly activity and how to apply.
