Our busy Education and Outreach Department works with some 5,000 people, young and old, across the South East. We currently deliver 8 of weekly in-house drama clubs and classes for all ages, along with in-school workshops and private tuition. Launched in 2018, Brave New World is our programme of outreach projects to assist less-advantaged schools and reduce social isolation in the community. Every year, some 3,500 participants take part in live theatre experiences, workshops and therapy sessions, the vast majority of which are entirely FREE to access.
We are now actively recruiting for a Creative Learning Producer, who will ensure the facilitation, administration, development and evaluation of these projects, whilst seeking to continue its dynamic growth and reach. The role will administrate, budget, create, publicise and fundraise for the education and outreach provision of GSC, ensuring a consistent and competitive level of delivery, provision, innovation and creativity.
