Job Start Date: September 2021

This role supports programme management for both the newly created Birmingham Arts School offer

and the Local Cultural Education Partnership, Birmingham Creates. The chance to establish and contribute to the inception of a new project is special, but when that project involves working right across a city, combining two discrete sectors with deep moral purpose, and has the chance to be nationally and internationally ground-breaking, the opportunity is remarkable. Our aim is for an exemplary arts and cultural education for every child in the city. The Birmingham Arts School is a new

initiative that carries the ambition of supporting school improvement, building cultural capital in schools and unlocking the collective potential of the city’s outstanding arts and cultural organisations as partners. Our focus is working with communities with the highest levels of need and challenging the inequality of opportunity faced by too many children. This part of the role (c.3 days per week) is to work with the Birmingham Arts School Principal, to establish the operations, build the programme delivery and support the communications and relationship building. The second part of the role (c. 1 day per week) is to apply the same skills to growing the Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP) called Birmingham Creates of which (BEP) is a member,

working with the Chair and Steering Group The initial three year funding for Birmingham Arts School and Birmingham Creates is supported by the Esme Fairbairn Foundation and Arts Connect, through Partnership Investment. This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
