Deadline: Midnight, Wednesday 12 July 2023

Panel and Craft Scotland are looking for a freelance Teacher Liaison to help deliver the MAKE with the Knit Shop project in Dundee.

MAKE with the Knit Shop is an ambitious new teacher development project supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Teacher Development Fund which will run from August 2023 to December 2025. Over two years, the project will work with six primary schools in Dundee to introduce new craft-based approaches to apply numeracy skills through textile activities.

The MAKE Teacher Liaison will provide a vital connecting role, supporting teachers and school leaders taking part in craft-based project activities and assisting makers working in or with the schools.

MAKE with the Knit Shop is a partnership between MAKE, Knit Shop and Dundee Creative Learning Network, with Craft Scotland and Panel. It is funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Fund, with additional support from Creative Scotland as part of their targeted funding to strengthen the craft sector in Scotland.

MAKE with the Knit Shop has been developed within the framework of MAKE Learn, a project linked to the MAKE Manifesto, which sets out action points and recommendations that directly reflect the issues of makers living and working in Scotland.
