Volunteer Officer – Outdoor Learning
Many children miss out on the experience of outdoor play and learning, and we want to change that.
As an important member of our team, you will learn about the nature that flourishes here, how to take care of it, and pass on your enthusiasm on to others.
You will help deliver our programme of nature education, bushcraft, wild play days, and even help with wild camping adventures for children during the summer.
We know that getting children outside can build confidence and inspire them to achieve things they never thought they could.
You don’t need any previous experience, but you must be keen to learn and try something new.
- Join a friendly and supportive team who can help you gain new skills and support you to become a leader
- Travel expenses up to £6.50 a day
- A TCV training package worth over £1000 including training in education leadership, working with children, first aid, safeguarding, health & safety, risk assessment and environmental games
- Branded clothing and protective equipment to keep you safe in your role
What we are looking for
We require people who can commit 2-4 days a week to take advantage of this opportunity. There is a lot of training involved and it takes time to build experience, so ideally you should consider taking on the role for a period of 6 months.
Our education sessions take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, so it is important that you are available on some of these days.
How to apply
The deadline for applications is 10:00am Monday, 21st September 2020.
Interviews are planned for the week after.
