Situation Vacant - Internship Education Officer

This is an exciting 6 month internship post on a beautiful organic farm. In our busy peak season we need an enthusiastic intern to support the delivery of environmental education to visiting groups - mainly residential primary school children. You need to be able to engage and motivate children in a fun and educational way, be a team worker and be an outdoor person.

Magdalen is an excellent employer and likes to provide a stepping stone for interns to hone their skills, gain masses of experience and challenge themselves. We have had 3 interns in the past; one moved onto a teaching post, one into a PGCE course and last year's intern is now a new member of Magdalen's Learning and Wellbeing Team. 


We will provide you with accommodation, all meals when on site, training in every educational activity and Safeguarding training.  This is a chance to be part of a fun, dynamic, hard-working team that is fully committed to providing an excellent service to all visitors.
