  • Project coordinator

Teaching Trees (TTs) is the Royal Forestry Society’s (RFS) schools programme for northern England and the Midlands. Our mission is to connect primary age children with local managed woodlands in order to teach them to value trees for wildlife, for the environment, for timber and for enjoyment.

The Royal Forestry Society has an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to support the development of its Teaching Trees programme for schools.

We currently work with primary schools across Yorkshire, Northumberland, County Durham, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. In 2015 we are launching new Teaching Trees projects in the Midlands, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

We are now seeking a highly motivated individual to support this expansion, together with the development of the project across all of its geographical areas. The successful applicant could be from a variety of different backgrounds but knowledge or experience in forestry/woodland management, education, event co-ordination would be valuable. Experience of delivering a public education programme would be an advantage. Home based, plus travel throughout the UK. Closing date: 30 September 2014.
