Learning and Engagement Trainee
Sadler’s Wells is a world – learning creative organisation, dedicated to presenting, producing and touring dance made today in all its forms. Sadler’s Wells Commissions, presents and produces more dance than any other theatre in the world – from tango to hip hop, ballet to flamenco, Bollywood to cutting-edge contemporary dance. With an innovative, year- round programme of performances and learning activities, this is the place where artists come together to create dance, and where we welcome everyone to experience dance and be inspired.
As the Learning & Engagement Trainee you are taking your first steps into an arts management role. Working with the Learning and Engagement (L&E) team, you are responsible for delivering activity to increase community engagement, champion social inclusion, facilitate skills development and empower learning.
Arts Management is about connecting artists and creative work with audiences. Arts managers execute plans to make a production, event or project happen – bringing together communities to create an experience that inspires us all.
Learning and Engagement (L&E) is about creating and sharing opportunities that will encourage and motivate communities to participate in and with our artistic programme.
By building internal and external relationships you will provide administrative and logistical support to plan, organise and coordinate the programme of Sadler’s Wells’ L&E activity. This includes the National Youth Dance Company (NYDC), associate schools, our young associates and companies and creative learning projects.
