Our workshops for schools are highly praised, with one teacher saying:

Although we always insist on a member of the school’s staff being present during sessions, we require all teachers to have a recent enhanced DBS check, which we can assist with obtaining.
Work is offered on an ad-hoc basis and we are looking for teachers who are based across the country. We take workshop bookings all year round, but our busiest seasons are leading up to Christmas and Easter. Workshop bookings are taken in full days, so we require teachers to be available for a full day of teaching. Projects can last from 1 – 6 days and often require an overnight stay before or between workshops, depending on the location. The work is especially suitable for people with other flexible part-time/freelance employment.
Our dance workshops are usually taught in teams of two. The theme and focus of the workshop is agreed in advance between the school and the Springs office, then it is up to the workshop teachers to creatively plan the exact contents of the workshop using the framework provided by Springs. Workshops are usually delivered for a class of up to 30 pupils, and can either be one-off workshops or part of a longer project leading up to a sharing or performance from the children. A workshop day can also sometimes include being required to lead an assembly or collective worship.
£80 - £120 per day. Plus travel expenses.
