Instructor - Fairplay Outdoor Education Centre

Fairplay Outdoor Education Centre is looking for an instructor/trainee instructor/tutor to join the team at Newham’s Outdoor Education Centre near Witham in Essex.  This post is initially from April to November 2018 with the possibility of the post becoming permanent subject to the staffing needs of the centre.

Fairplay OEC delivers outdoor education through activities such as climbing, abseiling, high ropes, zip wire, high swing, caving, environmental studies, beach combing, orienteering, sailing, canoeing, kayaking and raft building to groups of mostly upper primary age children who stay at one of the two centres with their teachers. Fairplay House in Wickham Bishops caters for 60 children and is set in 12 acres of parkland. 24 children can stay at our Houseboat-The Haybay Barge moored on the tranquil Blackwater Estuary.

This opportunity would suit a dynamic educator with an interest in learning outside of the classroom. Fairplay is passionate about Outdoor Education using activities as a tool for personal, social and group development. Growth mind-set and building resilience are the foundations of our work.

Accommodation may be available.

Closing date for application is Friday 20 April 2018.
