Art History teacher application

Art History Link-Up is seeking to appoint a passionate and innovative teacher to deliver our free course for state maintained sector students on term-time Saturdays at the National Gallery, and at other museums and galleries from time to time as appropriate to the syllabus.

The course will be a taught Extended Project Qualification course alongside two modules of the Pearson A level Art History course. It is envisaged that “Identities in Art and Architecture” and “Invention and Illusion: The Renaissance in Italy 1420-1520” will be delivered at the National Gallery. (A second and separate taught EPQ course at the Wallace Collection will deliver the A level modules “Nature in Art and Architecture” and “Power and Persuasion: the Baroque in Catholic Europe 1597-1685”.) Teachers will be supported in course structure, content and delivery throughout.

This is the fourth year of a successful programme, Art History for Everyone, and a unique opportunity to teach in a dedicated teaching space in a gallery setting, to develop and broaden teaching skills, and to widen participation to Art History and the arts. You can find out more about how the scheme runs here:

It is envisaged that the course will run on term-time Saturday afternoons, at the National Gallery in the afternoons, from September 2018-July 2019 for 2.5 hours with some supervision/direction of EPQ/homework clubs, run by homework assistants, that follow. The fee will be £200 per session, including preparation, marking and other reasonable duties as required.

Application is by email to [email protected] by 5pm on the closing date, Wednesday 26th June, by application form, and C.V. if desired, and covering letter setting out your suitability for the position and reasons for applying.
