Coventry Transport Museum in partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum seek a Museum and Schools Programme Project Manager
While we are plugging other people’s opportunities, I’ll take this one to remind everyone that the deadline for our Trust Director vacancy is also 29 October.
Back to Coventry…
Funded by the Department for Education via Arts Council England, the Museums and Schools Programme aims to drive more school visits to museums. These visits should ignite young people’s curiosity and instil a lifelong passion for the acquisition of knowledge, whilst raising their aspirations. This programme will help to meet the Government’s aspiration that all young people, regardless of where they live or their social circumstances, should benefit from the richness of our cultural collections and expertise.
Led by Coventry Transport Museum, in partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, you will be targeting a cluster of 100 local schools to take part in the programme. The project will generate 8,100 pupil visits to the museums between now and March 2015, with two thirds of visits being from disadvantaged pupils in places of low engagement with culture. There should be three repeat visits per pupil over the course of the project.
