This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the development of a strong partnership project between Tate Liverpool, Everton in the Community and the Edge Hill university and to work with a variety of organisations in an inspirational environment.
There has been rapid and considerable growth of collaborations between the Faculty of Education, Department of Sport and Physical Activity, Everton in the Community (the official charity of Everton Football Club), and partners throughout the Liverpool City Region in their work on mental health and social and emotional wellbeing within Education.
Tackling the Blues is a primary and secondary school-based programme led by the Edge Hill University targeting children and young people who are experiencing, or are at risk of developing, mental health problems. This new programme provides the opportunity to expand the focus on sport and physical activity to an arts strand in collaboration with Tate Liverpool.
To help us realise this project we need two highly organised coordinators to ensure this exciting programme is delivered on time and to budget. Working closely with the Programme Manager for Children and Young People, Tate Liverpool, you’ll be responsible for the coordination of programme activity.
You will plan and deliver programme and training with students, practitioners and external partners to develop suitable content for the programme. You will co-ordinate the delivery and logistics with partner organisations, whilst also contributing to the monitoring and evaluation of the programme.
To succeed, you’ll need experience of working on arts projects with children and young people preferably with some experience of using the arts to support good mental health and wellbeing. You will have strong organisational, time management and interpersonal skills, along with experience of managing relationships and working with multiple stakeholders.
Deadline 15 July. Interviews will be held on Thursday 23 July and Friday 24 July 2020.
This position is offered on a fixed-term contract of 2 years from September 2020.
