As the Learning & Engagement Trainee you are taking your first steps into an arts management role. Working with the L&E team, you are responsible for delivering activity to increase community engagement, champion social inclusion, facilitate skills development and empower learning.
By building internal and external relationships you provide administrative and logistical support to plan, organise and coordinate the programme of Sadler’s Wells’ L&E activity. Which includes the National Youth Dance Company (NYDC), associate schools, our young associates and companies and creative learning projects.
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.
This role is offered as part of STEP
STEP is a training programme for young East Londoners local to the Olympic Park, who are ready to bring ideas, creative energy and perspectives to the creative and cultural sector. You must be:
- Aged 18 to 30
- Resident of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham or Waltham Forest, and lived in the boroughs whilst at school or college
Through STEP, you’ll get paid London Living Wage over a 12-month training programme to develop a range of skills and creative approaches and build on your network across different organisations or departments. You’ll complete a work-based placement, grow as part of a peer network, take part in regular professional development workshops, and get a budget to produce a collaborative project.
We’ll also connect you with a specialist industry mentor, provide careers coaching and continue to offer support as part of our community after the programme.
