An opportunity for an Outdoor Learning & Engagement Sessional worker has arisen to assist with the preparation and delivery of informative and fun outdoor and indoor environmental activities. Formal school sessions are curriculum linked and involve practical hands on activities designed to increase young people’s knowledge and love of London’s wildlife and green spaces.
