As part of the Wolverhampton BAS9 Learning Engagement Team we aim to create an exciting and inspiring BAS9 learning programme for young people living in Wolverhampton and the Black Country. To successfully do this we want to collaborate with local creative teachers, arts educators and young people to build learning opportunities, resources, activities, training and events that are dynamic, relevant and inclusive. It is crucial that the BAS9 Learning Programme is created with arts educators and young people that are passionate about high quality creative education and cultural experiences.
