BEANii is looking for three energetic BEANii Dickens Directors to work in the Big BEANii Dickens Outreach Project between Jan – Apr 2014.  This is a great opportunity to direct a children’s theatre show and be part of an educational project that impacts on children’s learning, creativity, confidence, aspiration and health!

Applicants must be over the age of 18, DBS checked, and available to attend our training workshops on 2 November 2013 & 15 January 2014.

  • are passionate about helping young children achieve their best potential
  • can lead a small delivery team of university students to manage a class of 30 9 – 10 year olds
  • are able to grasp and relay simple scientific facts

Chair of the BEANii Dickens project steering group, and Consultant Paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, Professor Ricky Richardson remarks, “This programme gets children involved in drama as a way of educating them about science and the changing impact of disease over time. It provides a wonderfully innovative medium for children to learn of the benefits of healthy living, encouraging them to take responsibility for their own wellbeing.

To apply, email wendy@beanii.org your c.v. by 12pm on 19 October 2013.
