Nature Friendly Schools Officer with FSC Head Office, Nr Shrewsbury, Shropshire

Salary – £19,726 - £22,511 per annum

Contract Term – This is fixed term position due to start in April 2019 and end on 31st March 2020.


FSC is a partner in a consortium of organisations to deliver the Nature Friendly Schools Project. The project will deliver natural environment interventions for schools with an aim to improving pupils’ mental health and wellbeing, school engagement, plus their physical health, behaviour, attendance and care & concern for the environment. All partners will work with schools to build resilience. Approaches to be used include supporting children to find places of calm, improved problem solving skills and developing social skills and teamwork. 


We are now looking for a Nature Friendly Schools Officer to support the successful delivery of the FSC’s project delivery outcomes. You will implement and deliver residential sessions and webinars supporting teachers, to ensure teachers feel confident to deliver outdoor learning rather than just delivering direct to the students.  The post-holder will be expected to lead groups of all abilities in the natural environment with the ability to provide an appropriate standard of care for our learners. You will also contribute to all other aspects of the Head Office Education Development Function.


This is essentially an active role and will require the post-holder to be able to carry out duties associated with effectively managing groups in outdoor learning locations, which may be remote, whilst ensuring the health and safety of the group at all times, including carrying safety sacks.


If you feel that you meet the skills we are looking for, then we want to hear from you.
