Assisting our Learning and Outreach Officer to set up and run educational activities as part of the Green Lung project for schools and other groups, and/or running a forest school group in the school holidays or after school. You would be helping run workshops and activities such as pond dipping, invertebrate sampling, river measurements, art and craft activities and more.
It would be helpful to have experience engaging groups but it’s not essential as we can give you some in-house training. You will need to be enthusiastic and comfortable working with children and young people and have an interest in outdoor learning, wildlife and conservation. You need to be over 18 to volunteer for this role.
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check may be required which will be paid for by Tewkesbury Nature Reserve.
