What we're looking for

Our Skills for Good project in partnership with NUS (National Union of Students) aims to inspire and motivate young people to have the confidence and ability to lead their own sustainability projects. The programme aims to draw links between conservation and environmental work, with the wider UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development, demonstrating the intersections between the goals and motivating young people to feel that they can positively impact on a sustainable future. To help students to design and develop their own projects, we will support them with a range of learning and development courses. Both face to face, online and through virtual forums. We have a suite of face-to-face and online training for our workforce and we want to develop and/ or adapt this to be suitable and useful for a student audience-in particular our Leadership and Project Management training. We are seeking people with a background in training, to advise us on this, and/or help deliver. Your expertise in Learning and Development could help develop new ways we can support young people to be the next leaders of sustainability.

The skills you need

Experience of developing, designing or delivering Learning and Development to a high standard. Experience of doing this in a higher education setting or with young people, would be fantastic. The specific training we are looking to develop is Leadership and Project Management- therefore experience and more importantly an interest in either of these areas would be an advantage. A commitment to equalities and diversity is a must, and the training developed will have this at its heart.

Your time

6-9 months
Autumn 2018- Summer 2019

What's in it for you?
