Volunteering is a keystone of the School’s existence

The success of the School of Hard Knocks relies on the goodwill and support of volunteers. We engage professional leaders for each course and engage volunteer teachers and support staff to help run the courses that we offer. But you don’t need to be an expert to help us. Volunteer teachers have the support of the course leader who designed the contents of the program.

Our volunteer teachers should have:

Belief – that lives can be transformed through involvement in arts and culture and that everyone, whatever their background, has the right to participate in the arts

Desire to empower – those experiencing disadvantage through the joy of outstanding artsand culture activities

Passion & Energy – Huge energy and enthusiasm and a passion for achieving excellence

Creativity – A ‘harm reduction’ approach focused on tapping into talent, creativity and capability

Self Awareness – a willingness to grow, learn and evolve as a person, whilst giving back to the community

If you would like to be rewarded with a remarkable combination of new friendships, creative accomplishment and the satisfaction of genuinely transforming lives please complete our online Volunteer Application Form.
