The Tetley

Jobs & Opportunities


Springboard is a 10 month training programme for 15 early career artists who want to enthuse and engage the public around contemporary art.

This programme helps to equip artists who are innovative, creative and keen with the skills they need to break into the competitive world of arts education and participation. Volunteers will learn how to support and develop workshop activities and events for audiences that could include families, community groups and school pupils as well as our general visitors.

Testimonial: HAYLEY MILLS-STYLES (Springboard Participant 2014).
“When I applied for the Springboard Programme I wanted to kick-start my career as I moved towards the end of my MA. With the support of the staff at The Tetley I learnt how to use my own practice to develop workshops aimed at families. The Springboard programme is a great way to develop new skills and works alongside experienced artists and educators who will help you to understand participatory practice. Since the programme ended I have used the skills and confidence I gained to apply for roles in education. I have worked with Playful Leeds on their March of the Robots project, developing a group project and I am now employed as the Assistant Artist on the After School Club at The Tetley.”
