The AVA Research Centre is going to recruit 10-15 exceptional art students to deliver workshops for a learning programme for secondary school, which aims to enable teenagers to create, to explore, be joyous and enjoy a better quality of life.

We are looking for students who are interested in developing a career in art education and commitment to reflective learning. It will be a challenging experience that you must be ready to step up to lead a group of teenagers aged 12-16 on a creative journey, but it will also be extremely rewarding as you will learn to integrate your artistic practice into teaching and contribute to offering these teenagers a creative, fun and interactive way to learn. You will be supported by a trainer who will guide you through the steps you need to take to create an effective lesson plan and assess its results through the use of rigorous reflective practice.

To be considered you need to be:

  • Passionate about art education and aspire to gain classroom teaching experience in secondary school settings;
  • Confident in delivering workshops for young people with challenging behaviours;
  • Able to reflect on own practice and identify areas for further development;
  • Able to communicate effectively with a wide range of people;
  • Able to motivate and inspire other people;
  • Enjoy working in a team.

This programme is open to AVA students of all years. It can be accredited as meeting the requirement of “Visual Arts Working Experience”.
