Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust inspires people and communities to appreciate and take action for nature in towns and the countryside. It provides a programme of activities for those within formal education (from early years to higher education) and works with pre-school children, families, holiday and uniform clubs, and provides learning opportunities for life-long learners and those with special educational needs.
This role is suitable for those who are experienced or interested in working with children or looking to gain experience in the education sector. Education Team Volunteers may get the chance to work with school groups, Nature Tots, Wildlife Watch Groups, Secondary School students and adult learners. They will gain experience of working with or creating curriculum based material in an ‘outside the classroom’ learning environment; roles can be varied or specific to one area or target audience based on the interest and experience of the volunteer.
