About the role:
If so, we'd love to hear from you.
We are looking for a self-motivated individual who is experienced in working with primary-age children and familiar with the way primary education is organised and delivered. You will be an inspiring child-led educator with a good knowledge of schools and communities, who is confident and organised in running safe and appropriate cooking and gardening sessions and visits to working farms.
You will have individual responsibility and flexibility to plan your own workload with your schools, supported by a geographically remote line manager. You will be provided with cooking and gardening equipment which you will need to store and take into schools. You will work with farmers and food producers, recruiting them to support the programme by sharing their expertise and enthusiasm. Training is provided for Health and Safety, Food Hygiene and Safeguarding and other elements of the role as appropriate.
About The Country Trust:
As a nation we’ve lost connection with the land that sustains us. This has big, urgent ramifications for health, sustainability and equality. The land is really important to our daily lives now and in the future, from the food we eat, to how healthy the soil is and what we’ll be able to grow in the future, to how land is farmed and what that means for the environment.
The children that most need connection with the land are those least able to access it. The Country Trust works with disadvantaged children to rebuild that vital connection with the land. That’s because those children tend to be more affected by the issues our work seeks to solve – like poor diet, physical and mental health issues, pollution, and lack of access to the outdoors.
