Creative Practitioner Opportunity : Ysgol Llandrillo-yn-Rhos
Llandrillo-yn-Rhos County Primary, Elwy Road, Colwyn Bay LL28 4LX

Budget: £5,000 | Project Duration: Nov 2016 – May 2017 | Application Deadline: 10 Nov 2016

We’re inviting applications from Creative Practitioners (individuals / partnerships / studios / organisations) with skills in music/sculpture to work with two classes of Year 5 pupils (girls and boys, aged 9-10 at Key Stage 2). The aim of the project is to look at how maths knowledge can be applied through design and technology.

The school has an established Forest School and art studio. The latter is an inspiring creative space where the LCS project will be based. Alongside their strong interest in Forest Schools and arts, the teachers would like to further develop skills in music, D&T and applied mathematics and are keen to work with the Creative Practitioners to develop skills and resources that they may use again in the future. The Creative Practitioner(s) will also work with teachers and pupils to develop and deliver creative ways to document and evaluate the project (e.g. film, photography, video diaries, blogs) and also celebrate achievements.

We welcome applications from Creative Practitioner(s) (including individuals, partnerships, teams, organisations or studios) with skills in music/sculpture/design and who can demonstrate commitment to developing excellence in creative practice.

The project has an overall budget of £5,000 to cover all fees, reasonable expenses and materials. The contract is for approx. 15 Days work at a rate of £250/day, including VAT, which may be shared between two or more practitioners. The remaining budget is for reasonable expenses and materials towards the project.
