Call for Group Singing Facilitators
Sing Ireland seeks group singing facilitators for its panel for the delivery of the YouthSing Ireland programme for 2022/2023.
This initiative will provide music teachers and primary school students with opportunities to meaningfully engage with singing in the classroom and community with the support of our visiting group singing facilitators. The YouthSing Ireland programme will focus on creating a space where creative singing happens. This learning will support students and teachers alike in developing their musical self and allowing individual and group identity to emerge through song.
Facilitators will develop resources and support teachers online, with the YouthSing material as central to the work. In addition, they will work as SingSpace facilitators in workshops in schools and community venues. A SingSpace is an exciting opportunity for young people to come together and have an enriching shared musical experience with other young people and schools. You can find out more about our YouthSing Ireland Programme and SingSpaces here. Sing Ireland will provide regular training and mentoring for the facilitators and schools as part of this opportunity.
