Greenwich and Lewisham YPT - Freelance Drama Tutor

Thursday 22 June 2017

Knowledge of Special Educational Needs and experience of working with young people with diverse support needs and disability would be advantageous.   Funded by BBC Children in Need and The City Bridge Trust, Whatever Makes You Happy is a drama programme for vulnerable young people in Greenwich and Lewisham (in partnership with the Horniman Museum and Gardens). The project aims to increase good mental health and wellbeing, develop resilience, increase self-esteem and build communication and social skills. For young people to join the programme we require a professional referral. Most participants are referred by CAMHS services to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people or because the young people are at risk of receiving a mental health diagnosis in the future. The sessions are delivered in partnership between a Drama Tutor and Project Therapist alongside a support tutor, specialist volunteers and Peer Mentors.

Sessions take place after school and early evening on Mondays (at The Horniman Museum and Gardens) and Wednesdays (at The Tramshed, Woolwich). Working alongside our Project Therapist and under the guidance of our Participation Manager, you will take responsibility for planning and delivery of this programme, engaging members in a variety of arts activities and helping to support young people’s development in relation to the three key areas: self-esteem, communication and social skills.
