The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, national art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact on all of us.

The World Reimagined will see trails of large Globe sculptures in cities across the UK in August- October of 2022, created by artists to bring to life the reality and impact of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. The trails will be the centre of a broader public engagement programme – with hundreds of community groups, sporting and cultural institutions taking part across the country.

The World Reimagined also features our Learning Programme – an experiential and transformative journey for students, teachers and schools. Our Learning Programme is designed with specific offers for Primary Schools; Secondary Schools and Colleges, including flexible classroom resources; Teacher Leadership Development; and a platform for the creative expression of students. Our Poetic Programme is free to all schools across the country and our Globe Programme gives students the chance to collaborate to create their own Globes.

 

Over the last two years, we have brought together a powerful strategy and a coalition of partners to bring this important journey to schools and colleges across the country. We are now looking for an exceptional person to join us as our Learning Programme Officer until November 2022.

 

THE ROLE

Reporting to and working closely with the Senior Learning Programme Manager, you will have a critical role in coordinating and organising the delivery of our multi-strand, national programme. There’ll be a lot of team and stakeholder communication and management, on a project working at a fast-pace, so good communication and organisational skills are essential for this role.

The role will focus on these main goals, supporting the Senior Learning Programme Manager, by coordinating and administering:

  • the creation and delivery of our resources;
  • the development and delivery of our Leadership In Teaching Training Programme;
  • our recruitment of and engagement with schools and colleges;

We are looking for a person with at least 3-4 years’ experience of coordinating and managing education projects – or comparable project management – in a fast moving environment to a very high quality of delivery. They’ll be able to hit the ground running by matching their ability to build a broad variety of relationships with the capacity to take in and process a lot of information quickly and thoughtfully, bringing their full practical expertise to bear.

  • Exceptional organisational and project management skills, with excellention attention to detail;
  • Outstanding persuasive communication skills, with the ability to share complex plans with clarity; and
  • Experience of working in the education sector, with relevant networks. This is desirable but not essential.
