This is an exciting opportunity to join the Field Studies Council (FSC), one of the UK’s leading providers of outdoor environmental education. Field Studies Council is a pioneering environmental education charity committed to enabling people discover, explore, understand, and be inspired by the world around us. Established in 1943, our network of Learning Locations provide day and residential courses for all ages, from young children to retired adults, from schools and communities throughout the UK, reaching many others through our publications and community-based programmes.

The post holder will oversee the digital learning platforms and courses that support The Field Studies Council’s centre-based fieldwork for primary schools, secondary schools and universities. Our learning platforms include Moodle, ArcGIS Online and our website, where learners and teachers can access GIS maps, field technique videos, audio lectures and student worksheets. Our courses focus on teacher CPD and student development and include after-school webinars, ‘live lessons’ from the field, bespoke courses and ‘off-the-shelf’ digital modules.

The postholder will be required to identify new opportunities for learning development with our primary, secondary school and university audiences and be able to develop and support learning products to meet their needs.

The post-holder is not required to have a high level of digital expertise but will need to be confident with trouble-shooting and self-learning for a range of computer applications.
