The Folly is a Grade I listed historic house dating from 1679 in the heart of historic Settle. It houses the Museum of North Craven Life, which tells fascinating tales of the people and landscape of the local area. We have implemented new ways of connecting with our local communities by creating online exhibitions to engage audiences with our stories and collections. Following an evaluation of the museum's existing informal learning activities and resources, and the community pressures caused by lockdown, the Museum of North Craven Life wishes to appoint an experienced freelance museum educator to develop the Museum's learning offer both online and after lockdown.

We have been awarded an ACE Emergency Grant, £7,500 of which has been provided to produce two learning resource packs, suitable for schools and families, in line with the “Cultural Communities” strand of ACE’s Let’s Create strategy. Each pack will have activities aimed at KS2 and KS3 pupils, including underserved 12-16 year olds. Open-ended learning activities will be mapped to the national curriculum for Literacy, Art and Local history at KS1-3 and KS3 History strand "Ideas, political power, industry and empire.”

This is a four-month project, with delivery required before the end of November 2020. To apply, please provide a detailed proposal and timescale of the project along with your CV and a covering letter by 5pm on 6th July 2020.
