Education - School Facilitator

At WWT, we believe the best way for people to understand and connect to wetlands is to experience them, so we bring awe-inspiring nature up close. We are looking for people to join our London Wetland Centre Learning Team and contribute to this aspect of our work by assisting them in facilitating our special school visits.

With around 12,000 formal learners visiting the centre each academic year, we work together to ensure that every school group has a positive experience as they explore the site. Key to this is offering an organised and friendly welcome and supporting the arrival and navigation of school groups, and enhancing the self-guided experience for school groups when they are not in a guided learning session.

2021 sees the roll out of our exciting new project; Generation Wild. This project helps to connect schoolchildren and their families to nature. We are very proud to be able to offer this free of charge to schools with over 20% of pupils eligible for free school meals. You will play a key role in facilitating these school visits.

Your role will be to assist the Learning Team with preparatory tasks in advance of school visits, greeting and briefing school groups upon arrival, engaging learners during the self-guided portion of their visit, assisting with guided learning sessions, and to tidy up resources after schools have left.

Please note you need to be over 18 years to carry out this role.
