Learning Researcher/Consultant (Ceramics)




Project Fee £1,250 

Clay College Stoke is looking for a freelance researcher to undertake a review of the existing ceramics learning/community provision in the Stoke-on-Trent area which will inform the development of our future programmes for community and youth engagement. We are seeking an experienced consultant to deliver the following elements of the project:

• Review existing ceramics provision available in the Stoke on Trent and North Staffordshire available for 16-18 year olds in education, training, employment and NEET

• Identify and make initial enquiries with local groups and other service providers who might be suitable partners for a pilot scheme

• Prepare a final evaluation report on the findings or the two aforementioned areas with suggestions of what might make an appropriate pilot.

We are seeking an experienced, self-motivated and dynamic individual with experience of the ceramics offer in the local area and a knowledge of learning and community work. An excellent communicator, you will carry out the research during late January and February 2019 providing a draft report of your findings by the end of February 2019.

The consultant will be expected to work offsite whilst carrying out the research, but we are happy to offer time with our Trustees to discuss the project in more depth and a mutually convenient time to discuss the project with the Clay College Stoke staff as he or she is working on the project.

A total fee of £1,250 is available for this work, to cover all costs including travel. This work has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Charlotte Fraser Foundation.
