The Young V&A (formerly the V&A Museum of Childhood) is currently closed as we work to transform it into a new world-leading museum of design and creativity for children and young people.

Drawing on our internationally renowned collections of art, design and performance, the V&A Museum of Childhood will become Young V&A – the UK’s premier national museum designed by, and for, young people – a place where you can learn, create and debate together, and design for tomorrow.

We aim to inspire young people to be active citizens and creative change-makers in their communities; to empower educators to drive forward creative education in art, design and performance from early years to secondary school; to connect young people with the creative ingenuity of designers, entrepreneurs, innovators and inventors, and each other, and to influence the sector through child-centred museum practice.

The museum is due to reopen in 2023, and until then the Learning team is working collaboratively with colleagues and communities to build learning programmes and experiences in response to the developing galleries for Young V&A.

The Creative Learning Facilitator will contribute to the planning, development, delivery and evaluation of learning activity. The main responsibility will be preparation for and delivery of workshops, events and projects, supporting diverse children and young people aged 0-14 years to access inclusive, compelling and relevant learning experiences, and empowering them to develop creative skills and confidence, inspired by the new museum’s collection and themes.

They will work across formal and informal settings, delivering school workshops and assemblies, holiday activities for children and sessions for families and early years. Until the museum reopens in 2023, most work will happen in and around Tower Hamlets and neighbouring boroughs in East London, building on strategic partnerships with local authorities and community-based organisations. Once the museum re-opens, delivery will take place within on-gallery spaces for Learning and in a new Learning Centre with dedicated facilities.

We welcome applications from all backgrounds. The role may suit someone who does not come from a conventional museum background but who has experience of delivering creative or cultural learning in other settings.
