What you’ll be doing in this role

We are expanding our network of Freelance Educators who deliver our education programme to schools and colleges. across England & Wales

The roles are ad hoc as the educator will only be required as and when we have bookings in their area. Efforts will be made to fit around each person’s schedule, but ultimately will depend on the school’s timetable.

All our workshops involve interactive activities to help make them more engaging. We also try to develop the pupils’ emotional intelligence, as an understanding that we have emotional responses to the world before a cognitive one. We believe that this method allows the students to develop their own deeper understanding of the issues, and one that will last longer with them, which hopefully increases the likelihood of them altering their behaviour towards making the school environment and local community more inclusive.
