Submissions have now closed. Successful applicants will be contacted in February 2021.

Sydney Living Museums (SLM) Learning Advisors provide advice on current and new learning programming and projects at SLM museums and heritage places, to ensure that our programs are engaging, innovative, and inclusive, supporting key curriculum and extending classroom learning.

This is a voluntary role. SLM Learning Advisors gain valuable experience and professional insights in museum education, opportunities to participate in research and program development and discounted access to resources. 

In 2021, SLM Learning will focus on the development of learning programs for students with access requirements and is particularly seeking teachers with qualifications in accessible learning and teaching experience in schools for specific purposes or access support classes/units in primary or secondary schools. Teachers who teach in mainstream settings in all sectors are also welcome to apply. SLM programs focus largely on the NSW History syllabus but may include links to other learning areas. They also link to a range of Cross Curriculum Priorities including in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. 
New panel members will be required to complete an induction to Sydney Living Museums in addition to other responsibilities outlined in the Advisory Panel Role Description. 

Applications for this role closed on 25 January 2021. 

Successful applicants will be contacted in February 2021.
