Bow Arts is recruiting for the 6th year of the Artist Educator Trainee Programme.

The Bow Arts Artist Educator Trainee Programme provides the opportunity for six successful applicants to gain experience and develop the skills necessary to deliver arts education projects as a Bow Arts Artist Educator within school settings. Taking place over two school terms, you will have the opportunity to support a lead artist in a range of school settings, lead an activity or session with support and gain practical skills in planning and delivering formal learning projects. The trainee cohort will take part in group progress meetings with Bow Arts staff, providing space for discussion and reflection of your experience.

We are welcoming applicants who are passionate about arts education and who are underrepresented in the arts. Bow Arts is committed to promoting equality of opportunity, tackling discrimination, and welcoming and valuing the inclusivity of the communities we serve. We are actively working towards diversifying our current pool of Artist Educators to employ artists from backgrounds which are underrepresented in the arts. We are striving towards having a pool of Artist Educators that better reflects the population of the schools we work with. Therefore, this year we are recruiting trainees who are from communities underrepresented in the arts, this includes those who are Black, Asian and ethnically diverse, from a low socio-economic background, or living with a disability.
