Imagine a role where you can use your environmental knowledge to help shape the minds of the new generation; a role where you work as part of a team in the great outdoors, inspiring others and developing passions for the future. Teaching with FSC gives you a role with both challenge and opportunity, and a chance to start young people on a journey of discovery that can last a lifetime. FSC are looking for people with a curiosity for the world around us, a passion for the natural history of the British Isles and an ability to enthuse and inspire others.
The post-holder will develop, plan and deliver ‘out-of- classroom learning’ activities to a wide ranging audience; engaging and enthusing students and assisting FSC achieve its goal of ‘Bringing Environmental Understanding to All through first-hand experience’. The post-holder will be expected to lead groups of all abilities in the natural environment with the ability to provide an appropriate standard of care for our learners.
Although the role will primarily involve working out of a classroom at Tollymore Field Studies Centre, the post holder will have to be flexible, and a willingness to teach at FSC Derrygonnelly and to deliver outreach training at other locations as and when required is also a prerequisite for success. This role would suit someone with a strong background and passion for teaching geography fieldwork.
This is essentially an active role and will require the post-holder to be able to carry out duties associated with effectively managing groups in outdoor learning locations, which may be remote, whilst ensuring the health and safety of the group at all times, including carrying safety sacks. A willingness to travel and deliver at a number of learning locations in Northern Ireland is integral to this role; occasional overnight stays may be required in order to effectively deliver and meet customer needs.
