How many places are on offer?
Supporting educational visits from schools and designing suitable activities.
As an education volunteer, you will be delivering our new range of educational sessions to primary school children. These activities all tie the Primary School curriculum to our amazing exhibits, bringing history to life for children. You'll also have the opportunity to develop new activities and sessions and trial them with focus groups.
Administrative duties such as liaising with teachers and running focus groups to better understand our audience would also be a useful component of the role, some of which can be performed from home.
When running mid-week activity sessions, Duty Supervisor responsibilities will be provided.
We are looking for a commitment of at least one full day or two half-days per month depending on the activities taking place. This can fit into your own schedule normally, although weekday volunteering would be useful to assist with school bookings.
This opportunity would suit retired teachers, trainee teachers, or those looking for a career in a formal or informal education setting
