We are looking for people with experience of working with children and a love of canals & rivers.
We are presently recruiting education volunteers to be based at Etruria, Stoke-on-Trent. Interviews are taking place this summer. We presently have a small team of education volunteers who deliver school and group visits to Etruria, Congleton and Stone. We would like to expand this team of volunteers, enabling us to work with more schools and groups.
Canal & River Explorers volunteers deliver themed workshops, in schools and on the towpath, linked to the National Curriculum. We also provide workshops for uniformed groups linked to their badges.
We provide you with the resources to deliver inspiring visits with children about our waterways. You will have the support of an education officer as well as the other volunteers in your team. We reimburse you for all travel costs within 40 mile round trip of your base (Etruria).
