Help Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery shape their education offer & gain access to exclusive events, private views, workshops and projects for your pupils

Help us shape our education offer and gain access to exclusive events, private views and workshops and projects for your pupils. We are looking for primary, secondary and SEN teachers.

The Education and Outreach department are developing a programme that will engage and inspire people of all generations and from all walks of life, with a particular focus on those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special needs. Since closing in 2015 the outreach programme of free and low cost events has engaged diverse audiences, on reopening we will expand this programme significantly. Our pioneering architecture and design programme for secondary students will allow pupils from low income and underrepresented groups to access apprenticeships, qualifications and careers within arts and design.

Pitzhanger is an approved site study on the OCR GCSE History framework, providing students with an exciting insight into local history and a wealth of resources to explore. While our primary programme will offer pupils a range of arts and cultural experiences which will inspire and inform their learning across the whole curriculum. As an official Artsmark partner organisation it is our aim to support schools in embedding a creative curriculum and getting tangible benefits from partnerships with arts organisations. Key to this vision is a close working relationship with teachers and other education professionals, we want to create a programme that responds to the needs of teachers, supports pupils academic, social, and moral growth and encourages creativity among the whole community.

We are looking for a small group of teachers from across the key stages to form our teachers forum to ensure our programme meets the needs of our local schools. In exchange for joining us at two evening meetings per year you will be given access to private views in the gallery, exclusive events inside the manor and free workshops and other opportunities for your pupils.
