Creative Mentors opportunity

Our Creative Mentors are experienced practitioners from a range of backgrounds and different creative disciplines including (but not limited to) art, design, craft, textiles, creative writing, fashion, music, dance, drama, interactive media, journalism, film and photography.

Creative Mentors act as an advocate for The Mighty Creatives and network of support services for children and young people in need, through target areas of delivery, as well as wider work of the charity. They support children and young people through one-to-one and/or one-to-many training and/or Creative Mentoring sessions. Creative Mentors allow beneficiaries of the programme the time and space to develop their engagement in activities through the arts and how they can apply the skills from the programme into education, society, employment or training.

Application process:

Practitioners interested in becoming one of our Creative Mentors should download the Service Specification and Supporting Info documents, along with an application form, and submit a completed application form outlining their experience against the provider specification (pages 7-9 of the Service Specification document).
Completed applications should be sent to by the deadline of 9am on Thursday 20th June 2024.

We encourage anyone interested in being a Creative Mentor to attend our free Creative Mentor Pre-Application Briefing Session on Wednesday 5th June, 5-7pm on Zoom.
