Bullion Hall is looking for freelance tutors

13th November 2019

Bullion Hall is a popular and well known community centre in Chester le Street with a busy weekly schedule offering a wide range of activities from exercise classes, including Pilates, Zumba and Yoga to arts and crafts, music and dance and more. We are open from 8.30 until 9pm weekdays with classes and activities running through the day.

The Wait ‘er While Café, open every weekday from 9am to 2.30pm and a set of offices occupied by charities working in Chester le Street and across the region. While we have people from across County Durham coming to Bullion Hall to take part in activities, group and classes, we chiefly serve communities in Chester le Street and close to Bullion Hall.

To enable us to continue to meet the needs and interests of our local communities we want to create a pool of freelance, self-employed tutors who are experienced at working in community settings.

Examples of subjects that we are interested in that will compliment or enhance our current offer, include: sewing, knitting and other crafts painting and drawing, creative writing, choir and singing, Yoga, Tai Chi and other exercise and wellbeing activities for example walking football or rugby, beginners and intermediary classes in foreign languages, musical instruments and other hobbies and pastimes.

This is not an exhaustive list and if you are an experienced freelance tutor delivering classes in a topic that you think will attract people to Bullion Hall we would like to hear from you. Many of the activities we currently offer are for people aged 50 and over. However, we are particularly interested in developing more classes and activities for children and young teenagers (aged 8 to 14).
