OPP OF THE DAY: Schools Outreach Volunteer, R.S.P.B

The RSPB’s Schools Outreach Project aims to bring thousands of primary school children closer to nature by connecting them with the nature in their school grounds.

As a Schools Outreach Volunteer you’ll play an essential role in this project. You’ll be responsible for delivering sessions in schools, helping children to explore nature in their school grounds; igniting their curiosity, showing them the difference they can make to their environment and motivating them to spend more time outdoors.

Studies show children are becoming increasingly distant from nature. As a result, our children are missing out. Experiencing natural places is beneficial to everyone, especially children, for their health, wellbeing, personal and social development and it’s essential in helping children develop positive attitudes towards nature.

Your natural enthusiasm and knowledge will be vital in encouraging and inspiring children and their teachers to take an interest in the wildlife on their doorstep and make their school grounds more nature friendly.

We’d like you to have previous experience of working with children, preferably primary school aged. You will need excellent communication skills and should be able to work with a range of ages and abilities. You should be creative, and enthusiastic about wildlife and conservation. You’ll need to be able to work as part of a team and on your own. You must be well organised and highly motivated. You will need to be able to give and take instructions. References will be sought.

Preferably one day a fortnight, but some flexibility
