You did not enter a postcode in the search, or the postcode for this role is unknown.

A chance for you to inspire children and their families to take action on climate change by reducing their carbon footprints and leading a more climate-friendly lifestyle. All resources and training provided.

You will go to a primary school in London to deliver a workshop programme about climate change/carbon footprints and inspire the children to start taking action on climate change. More specifically, this involves:

- Undertaking a short training to gain familiarity with the workshop materials (this can be done remotely).

- Delivery of a programme of workshops (five in total, each lasting one hour) during school hours. (You won't manage the students alone - the teacher remains with you the whole time).

- Supporting children with activities related to the workshop, like producing board displays in their school.

- Providing feedback to Climate Ed about the effectiveness of the programme.

- Conducting a follow-up evaluation with the workshop participants two months after the end of the programme to see how much CO2 they have saved.

We are looking for: - People who have previous experience either as teachers or workshop facilitators, ideally but not essentially with young people. - People who are knowledgeable about climate change (and related environmental/sustainability issues), keen to share their knowledge with others, and are able to inspire children to inspire their families to reduce their carbon footprints. - People who enjoy interacting with children and answering their questions. We are building our network of partner schools but often volunteers have their own links to schools. If you want to volunteer and know a school that might be interested then you would be very welcome to promote the programme to that school. We require volunteers to be aged 18 or over. Climate Ed has a robust safeguarding policy and all volunteers are thoroughly vetted and require a DBS check.

You will gain many things from this experience: - A chance to develop teaching and facilitation skills, and science communication skills. - A chance to develop your own knowledge about climate change. - A chance to play your part in addressing the biggest challenge of the 21st century. - A chance to have fun (the programme is full of fun and laughter) and to be part of a nice, committed team of people.

When volunteers sign up we ask that they commit to delivering the programme twice (ie two sets of five workshops). When that happens though is flexible - you could deliver it once, then wait a few months before delivering it again.
