What we're looking for
Are you passionate about nature in Glasgow? Do you want to share your knowledge and enthusiasm with primary schools in your community and help us to inspire the next generation of nature protectors? Be part of our Education team, and deliver nature sessions to primary schools and early years' establishments around Glasgow. Following a period of shadowing and supporting sessions, we'd ask you to take the lead on delivering three different workshops with classes of children (5-12yrs in primary and 3-5yrs early years). The sessions are fun and interactive, allowing plenty of opportunities for first-hand experiences of nature. Children are becoming increasingly distant from nature. 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. We believe that connecting children to nature in their local area and beyond is vital for securing the future of our wildlife. 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. As a Schools Outreach Volunteer you will deliver our nature connection sessions- igniting children's curiosity and showing them the difference they can make to their environment.
