Vacancies with Soundhub

Closing date: 30 November 2014

Soundhub, the music education hub for Kent, is seeking to recruit a team of instrumental teachers to teach on its whole class instrumental teaching programme at Key Stage 2, MusicPlus.

MusicPlus is a 30 week programme with in-built professional development and is a wonderful vehicle for introducing children in year 4 to the joys of music making for free!

Soundhub are looking for teachers with experience of teaching whole classes on orchestral instruments, guitar and ukulele (not percussion). There are at least 90 primary schools across Kent where we wish to place new MusicPlus projects and these teachers will be asked to take on a minimum of six projects providing approximately six hours teaching per week.

If you have no experience of teaching whole classes but would like to attend CPD, access mentoring and observe MusicPlus teaching sessions to train we are also interested in hearing from you too.

Teachers will teach within the Soundhub MusicPlus framework, attend at least one day of professional development per year and participate in the Soundhub quality assurance programme. This is a peer to peer initiative designed to support the development of MusicPlus teachers.

MusicPlus provides an excellent platform from which to build additional teaching. Soundhub is always developing other activities in schools and communities including small group tuition, out-of-school ensembles and other musical groups and would expect that teachers joining the MusicPlus programme are able to use it as a starting point for building up a diverse portfolio of activity.

Teaching will start in September 2014. To find out more please register your interest by emailing giving your name, email address, phone number, and the instrument(s) you can teach as well as outlining your experience of teaching whole classes.

We look forward to hearing from you.
