Shooting Roots Lead Tutor Application Form 2019
Thank you for interest in being a lead tutor!

Lead tutor is a freelance paid role, with the exact reimbursement varying per festival as follows
Warwick: £100 plus a festival ticket
Sidmouth: £100 plus a festival ticket plus travel expenses up to £50

If you would like to lead at one festival but core at another there is an option to tick 'Lead' or 'Core' for all festivals. If you would be happy to core if you are not selected as a lead you can indicate this by ticking both boxes. Core tutors are volunteers who get a festival ticket and travel expenses (up to £50).

We want you to be able to enjoy the festival as well as contributing to Shooting Roots, so no tutor will be booked for more than one workshop at the same festival, whether they are a lead, core or trainee.

For more information about what is involved in leading a Shooting Roots workshop take a look at the descriptions on our website by following this link: http://shootingroots.org/about/tutorscheme/

You will also find more information about what is happening at each festival in the Provisional Tutor Festival Info document here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13_pPiX5QS2uX7XoFr9ow1Up_qhuFGhBpDBtBhx24kpk/edit?usp=sharing

Please fill this form in ASAP, but definitely before MIDNIGHT ON 28th APRIL 2019. We will aim to send out emails with our confirmed tutor teams within the first two weeks of May.

**IMPORTANT** Although we try our best to get as many people involved as possible, we may not be able to offer tutor places to everyone who applies. This is especially the case this year as we will only be at two festivals, and we expect to receive more applications than the number of tutors we can have. Please don’t let this put you off applying, because there are many things we take into account, but do bear in mind that just because you apply doesn’t mean you are guaranteed a tutor ticket, even if you have tutored with us before. It is always a very difficult decision, but we need to try to get the right balance between experienced tutors and new generations of tutors, mixes of instruments/dance styles etc and more, and we sadly can’t always take everyone we want to! :( If we can’t offer you a place this year, please do apply again next year though, we still love you!

Extra: Would you be interested in helping us tutor Storytelling in 2020? This does not commit you to anything, it is just to give us an idea, and to help us send relevant information to the people who are interested.
About you...
Please outline any experience you have of leading workshops in your subject area, including any previous Shooting Roots work.
Your answer
Please describe any ideas you have for the content of any workshops you would like to lead.

Your answer
Are you subscribed to the DBS updates service?
This year we will be asking all lead tutors to obtain a DBS check with barred lists (we will cover the cost of this). However if you are already subscribed to the update service this will speed up the process.
Please provide details of two references who have known you in the last 3 years and are not relatives.
Please provide their name, position, telephone number and email.

Tutor Weekend
We hold an annual Tutor Weekend in June, which is an opportunity for old and new tutors to meet up, share tips and have a fun weekend together. It would be great to have as many tutors there as possible, as there will also be specific planning sessions for each festival. This means you can meet your teams and share ideas before the summer! We therefore STRONGLY RECOMMEND that anyone who would like to tutor this summer attends the Tutor Weekend.

Food and indoor camping accommodation will be provided. If the cost of travel is an issue, please let us know, as we may be able to provide travel bursaries.

Are you able to come to the Tutor Weekend on 28th-30th June 2019 in Hathersage? *
Required
Do you have any ideas for workshops/activities for the Tutor Weekend? Silly and sensible suggestions welcome!
