Overview

The Plymouth Cultural Education Partnership (PCEP) is a strategic collaboration between cultural, educational, community and youth organisations across the city.

PCEP seeks to address inequality in Plymouth by ensuring all children and young people have access to a high quality arts and cultural education offer that responds to their needs.

 

The partnership successfully secured funding for the development and delivery of With Flying Colours (WFC), a practitioner led programme of playwriting and playmaking opportunities in schools.

 

The Partnership now wishes to extend its work by establishing a Forum to provide networking opportunities for practitioners, partners and stakeholders.    

The Role

We are seeking to appoint an experienced Co-ordinator to support Plymouth Cultural Education Partnership to establish a Forum through which we will offer a year-long programme of networking events and opportunities.

 

The Forum is designed to create space to share best practice and discuss key issues related to culture education. The co-ordinator will work closely with the PCEP  members and With Flying Colours (WFC) project team to determine network thematics driven by shared learning and strategic objectives.   

 

The Forum should create opportunity to showcase, lobby support, connect partners and drive positive action for children and young people, and the co-ordinator will take responsibility for curating the networking programme to meet these objectives.

 

We are particularly interested to hear from people with experience in the cultural and/or educational sector. You will need to have experience in organising events and workshops, and excellence in managing multi partner projects. It is essential that you have a background in partnership working and have outstanding communication skills, verbal and written.

 

We strongly believe in diversity of voice and as such, welcome applications from anyone regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
