The Field Studies Council (FSC) is the UK’s leading charity sector provider of outdoor environmental education. Much of our work is based at our Field Centres, which have an international reputation for high standards of school and university teaching and associated facilities. For more information, please visit: http://www.field-studies-council.org.
FSC East Group of centres is looking for self-employed Freelance Outdoor and Environmental Learning Tutors to support our work in the delivery of fieldwork and environmental education 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’. They will be expected to work with groups of all abilities and to have the ability to provide an appropriate standard of care for our learners.
Previous experience of delivering environmental learning and/or fieldwork and general environmental education is essential, as are appropriate, other qualifications covering relevant activities. A degree in a relevant subject is essential for teaching biology or geography field-work courses. It is not essential to have a degree for leading some of our outdoor or environmental courses as long as significant relevant experience can be shown.
Freelance Outdoor and Environmental Learning Tutors are also expected to have a valid first aid qualification (16 hour or more), and to have their own personal liability insurance. It is preferable, although not essential, to have D1 minibus driving on your licence.
Work will be offered on an occasional, ad hoc basis as business needs dictate, therefore the availability of work will vary.
