Wheelhouse Staff Responsibility

Professional staff members from the Wheelhouse Studios’ team take responsibility for overall program direction, coordination and administration. Staff works to develop class ideas, recruit, select, orient and evaluate instructors. They promote the class, conduct registration and facilitate program evaluation. Time is spent with instructors in scheduling courses and facilities. Staff can serve as consultants in course design and planning, but this responsibility is primarily left to instructors.
