In one of their Experiences, the children put on wireless headphones and are plunged into the world of their topic. They become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure they’ll never forget.

They are looking to recruit scriptwriters on a freelance basis, who have strong backgrounds in education. As well as writing scripts, you may create worksheets that go alongside the Experiences. You should:

– have experience of writing creatively for education.

– have a good understanding of the new curriculum and, ideally, have KS2 expertise in one of literacy or maths.

– have experience of working with KS2 children and, ideally, of making schemes of work, resources etc.

– be able to write to house style.

Please send a C.V. and covering letter to by Sunday 12th April. Within your letter, in a short paragraph, sum up what sort of story you’d use to help improve KS2 understanding of either Adverbs (literacy) OR Percentages (maths). Remember that a script lasts 25 minutes and is a fully-fledged story.
