Educational Resource Development – Freelance opportunity

Our archive and library collections hold an amazing range of diverse and powerful histories and experiences from Black, Asian, global majority, refugee and migrant communities. We need someone to help us create a set of lesson/activity plans and other resources that are rooted in our collections and support teachers and educators to deliver strong anti-racist teaching.

If you have a strong understanding of anti-racist teaching practice and experience of creating collections-based teaching resources for formal and informal learning this might be for you!

Total of 40 days work at £250 per day, on a freelance basis, between Jan and April 2021.

We welcome applications from freelancers with Black, Asian, global majority, migrant and refugee heritage as well as organisations that work with/for these communities.

We also welcome applications from others who can demonstrate a strong understanding of anti-racist teaching and commitment to making Black, Asian, global majority, migrant and refugee history more visible and accessible to all. 

Deadline for responses: 10am Monday 11 January 2021                    

Interviews are likely to take place in the week commencing 18 January 2021

Please take a look at the full brief, with details of how to apply, here.

Please note: This work will not require extensive access to our archives, but the freelancer would need to visit at least once or twice (all dependent on coronavirus restrictions, of course).  This means that we need to appoint someone who lives within Greater Manchester (or who is in Manchester regularly, for other reasons).
