What we're looking for
Our Schools Outreach Programme, designed to deepen children's connection to nature, was paused due to Covid-19. We have tested out Covid-compliant delivery measures and now want to resume this popular offer, providing free, curriculum-linked outdoor education sessions in school grounds. In three of the continuing cities (Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester) we currently do not have Schools Outreach Officers in post. We need your help to contact schools in those cities (mainly by telephone in the first instance) to: (a) inform them of our Covid-compliant delivery; (b) enquire about whether they are allowing visitors onto school premises, either now or when they are hoping/ planning to; (c) have an opportunity to initiate enquiries for bookings (by emailing appropriate information to interested schools). Your work will help to inform project decision-making, particularly regarding when to recruit new Schools Outreach Officers for these three cities.
