Learning Resources Director job

21st January 2022

As part of a major expansion of its digital programme for schools, Aurora Orchestra is creating a new Learning Resources Director role within its management team. Aurora has recently developed an innovative and flexible suite of online learning resources aimed at helping teachers embed music in the classroom within EYFS, KS1 and SEND settings. Closely aligned with the national curriculum and enriched by an integrated CPD programme, these resources have been extensively piloted in over 60 schools in England, and will be launched nationally from summer 2022.

We are looking for an outstanding communicator with a passion for music education to help us develop and scale the impact of Aurora’s online learning offer at a moment of exciting potential for our organisation.  The appointee will use their experience, networks, and advocacy skills to build and nurture relations with schools, music hubs, local authorities and other stakeholders, championing the resources and building a sustainable subscriber base across the UK. Working in close collaboration with our artistic and production teams, they will plan and oversee the creation of new digital resources for the platform over coming seasons, using Aurora’s live programme as the artistic basis for a growing library of vibrant educational content. They will develop a national CPD programme and – in line with Aurora’s commitment to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to experience the transformative power of music – target schools in areas of particularly low engagement with the arts and/or where there is a particularly pressing need for the resources.
