Job reference: Outdoor Woodland Learning Intern

We are looking to take on two interns to train in the delivery of both formal and informal outdoor education sessions.  We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a passion for the outdoors, the natural world and an interest in working with children of all ages.

Ideally the successful applicants will hold a degree in the earth sciences, countryside management or education and hold a first aid certificate. You will be keen to develop skills in environmental education.  You will need your own transport, as Nower Wood is not accessible by public transport, and you will be expected to do some weekend working but the posts offer flexibility to meet our needs and yours. 

An age related minimum wage will be payable to assist the candidate. 

Availability

We have two part time post (3 days a week) for 6 months starting mid March and ending mid September 2019.

The Outdoor learning team aims to increase the understanding and appreciation of our ancient woodland heritage in Surrey through engagement with the local community.  This involves the delivery of curriculum based and informal education sessions to all ages as well as open days, holiday clubs, family events and working with volunteers.
