Casual Learning Officer

Our Education Centres are at the heart of the work we deliver with schools. We are looking for Casual Learning Officers to assist with the delivery of our engagement activities!

Our Education Centre in Sutton Courtenay is a busy hive of activity that delivers sessions to over 3000 schoolchildren each year. Our Learning Team works together to ensure the smooth running of each school visit including leading curriculum-linked educational activities on our nature reserve.

Our Casual Learning Officers work on an as-needed basis to provide additional teaching support during busy periods. This role would suit somebody who is looking to gain experience in environmental education or community engagement but is seeking flexible variable hours. All of our Casual Learning Officers undergo a full paid induction programme including shadowing of teaching sessions so that they feel confident taking on groups of their own.

About you
You are an organised team player who is passionate about sharing the wonders of the natural world with those around you. You will have experience planning and running engaging educational activities for different audiences, specifically children under 18. You have a good knowledge of local UK wildlife but more importantly a willingness to learn more about the nature found at Sutton Courtenay Environmental Education Centre.

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust is a membership-based voluntary organisation, managing over 80 nature reserves, influencing land management and educating and encouraging all sectors of the community to care for local wildlife. Find out more.

Applications will be considered for interview on a rolling basis, so we would advise applying as early as possible. We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive sufficient applications for the role.
