Freelance Activity Facilitators

Global Generation
The Story Garden, Ossulston Street, London NW1 1DF

Posted: 1 Jun 2021

Deadline: 30 Jun 2021

Compensation: £150 per day

Paid Fixed term / contract


Job description

Context:

We have been awarded funding to run a 4 week summer holiday programme. The programme will focus on both food and activities with lunch being provided by our community chef often made with the children attending each week. Some of our local children have been attending the garden since we opened so we are looking for activities that offer them something new to learn as well as having fun. We are mainly an outdoor provision but will have some indoor spaces available.

Brief: 

We are looking for experienced facilitators to design, lead and monitor a 4 day nature-focused activity programme with enrolments, oversight and lunch provided by Global Generation staff. The sessions will last for 4 hours each day including lunch. Children who come to the garden are used to free play here, to gardening crafts and adventure. We are particularly interested in a project that could take the 4 days to create i.e a build project or something that culminates in something to include parents on the final session.

Focus:  

Nature based activities eg: 

  • Craft activities such as weaving, sculpture and clay (we have a kiln on site)
  • Woodworking and natural building 
  • Gardening and Cooking
  • Imagination, creativity, innovation and play are all important themes in our programmes
