ROC has now merged with United Response
ROC Creative, based in Paignton, are looking for someone to lead their Photography groups. There are two groups of around 6 adults with learning disabilities, mixed gender and varying levels of support required. In addition to a solid background in adult social care, experience in the arts is essential. The groups use photography as a medium but the technical skill required is moderate. What is essential, however, is creativity and a willingness to support people in their creative process.
