Evenlode Catchment Partnership: Education Officer

Full-time (37 hours per week)

Salary - GBP 28,574 - 30,462 per annum. Fixed term contract to 31st March 2024.

There has never been a Catchment-wide education programme for the River Evenlode. The ECP aims to meet this urgent need by increasing the connection, educational experience and active involvement of young people and their wider communities with the River Evenlode.

The Evenlode Education Programme (EEP) will be developed from the bottom up in partnership with education professionals working in schools, colleges and universities within, and surrounding, the Catchment. The role-holder will also work closely with the Community Outreach Officer to develop relationships with youth group leaders, community groups, etc. Consultations in different parts of the catchment will be held with education professionals. The results of these consultations will define and guide the development and delivery of the education programme and ensure its maximum impact.

Key aims

  • Connect: To help schools, colleges and universities, as well as youth and community groups, access and visit their local stretch of the Evenlode River.
  • Educate: To provide educators, youth and community leaders with information, resources and skills to teach people of all ages about the River Evenlode and its Catchment.
  • Act: To enable young people and their communities to take positive action to care for, and ecologically improve, the River Evenlode.

As this is a new role in a new and exciting programme, we expect it to develop and evolve over the first few months of employment - through ideas led by the role-holder.
