One of the key partner organisations within the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme (OWLP), Green Light Trust, is looking to fill a post to deliver their project within the OWLP scheme:

Green Light Trust is looking for tutors to deliver some sessional work as part of the Ouse Washes project.

Candidates should have a good working knowledge of wetland landscape conservation, have experience of tutoring, teaching or leading group work and have experience of working with vulnerable groups.

Please send a CV with covering letter to info@greenlighttrust.org by Friday 13th June.

 

More details about the work:

The OWLP project, the ‘Community Warden Scheme’ aims to recruit and train people to volunteer to take care of the local natural and built heritage in the OWLP area, with a specific focus on wetland habitat management.

As part of the job you would be leading a series of blocks of work for groups, where these groups spend one session per week for 7 weeks carrying out environmental conservation, principally within the grounds of the Mepal Outdoor Centre. You will be working with two different participant groups; disengaged young people and those experiencing mental ill health.

All participants will have the opportunity to work towards a John Muir Award and/or an accredited conservation qualification. Each block will comprise 6 tutored sessions followed by one volunteering session within a local nature reserve. There will be a total of 6 blocks for Young People, working with a Pupil Referral Unit, and 6 blocks with adults experiencing mental ill health. These blocks will be spread across 2014, 2015 & 2016.
