Creative Mentors

The Mighty Creatives

What can you receive?


25 September 2023

The Mighty Creatives are looking to commission suitably qualified Creative Mentors for the provision of a Creative Mentor Support service to identified children and young people referred to their Creative Mentoring service.

The pool of Creative Mentors will have a range of arts and/or media skills, experience of leading creative learning and a positive, child-centred approach to working with young people on a one-to-one basis.

Creative Mentors work with children from age 5 to 25 to build a trusting relationship, introduce creative activities according to the child’s interest and facilitate inspiring experiences to support personal, social and emotional development and educational achievement. Our Creative Mentors are experienced practitioners from a range of backgrounds and different creative disciplines including (but not limited to) art, design, craft, textiles, creative writing, fashion, music, dance, drama, interactive media, journalism, film and photography. When children and young people are referred to us, we work with them to decide which Creative Mentors are best placed to work with them considering things like location, interests, and any specific support that they need.

As a Creative Mentor, you will act as an advocate for The Mighty Creatives and network of support services for children and young people in need, through target areas of delivery, as well as wider work of the charity. You will support children and young people through one-to-one and/or one to many training and/or Creative Mentoring sessions. You will allow beneficiaries of the programme the time and space to develop their engagement in activities through the arts and/or understanding of the sector needs and how they can apply the skills from the programme into education, society, employment or training.

These sessions should also support individuals to identify what activity and wider education, employment and enterprise support services that might be required to support them into the world of work in partnership with other professionals supporting the child/young person.
