Shooting Roots Lead tutor application form 2018
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
St Albans: £100 plus travel expenses up to £50 (no festival ticket)
Warwick: £100 plus a festival ticket
Sidmouth: £100 plus a festival ticket plus travel expenses up to £50
Bromyard: £100 plus a festival ticket

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 except St Albans, which is only open to leads. 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:

You will also find more information about what is happening at each festival in the Provisional Tutor Festival Info document on the above page.

Please fill this form in ASAP, but definitely before MIDNIGHT ON 22nd APRIL 2018. We will then aim to send out emails with our confirmed tutor teams by the first week of May.

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.
