Ark Music Programme – Music Educators & Facilitators

We are looking for talented and inspiring musicians to come join our team of freelance music educators. Whether you’re fresh out of college, or an experienced teacher and workshop leader – we’d like to hear from you!

We are currently hiring for the following roles:

  • Teacher coaches & music practitioners (primary)

Ark is an education charity and one of the country’s top performing academy operators. Our academies are situated in areas of high disadvantage, with over 30% of Ark pupils eligible for free school meals, compared with 16% nationally. Our vision is to create a group of outstanding schools that radically improve our pupils’ life chances.

The central music team exists within Ark to support music-making across the network. We believe that a high quality, progressive and diverse education in music is the entitlement of every child, regardless of their background. Our mission is to ensure that every pupil in an Ark school is set-up to enjoy a life enriched by music and the many holistic benefits that brings. We want our young people to leave school knowing that they are creative musicians who belong to a vibrant artistic community.

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in a crucial stage of development for our thriving programme, as it continues to connect with even more students across the country. By joining our team of musician educators, you will have access to high-quality training throughout the year and opportunities to network with our diverse roster of musicians.
