HERITAGE, CULTURE AND VISITORS
Fixed Term Contract – up to 15 months
Based at National Civil War Centre
APPLICANTS FOR THIS POST WILL REQUIRE AN ENHANCED DISCLOSURE FROM THE DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE.
Do you love history and heritage?
Do you want to share that passion with others?
Then start your career in museum learning with this fantastic opportunity!
The brand new position of Learning and Participation Assistant at the National Civil War Centre is an excellent chance to take your first steps into this profession. The ideal candidate will have a friendly, engaging personality and enjoy working with and teaching a wide range of people. The ability to think creatively will be an important part of the role as the successful candidate will be involved in the design, delivery and evaluation of learning activities for schools and visitors.
Every day brings something new in this role; you might be leading a group around Newark dressed in 17th century costume one day while on the next you could be devising a way to make functioning mini cannons or teaching (foam!) swordplay to 8-year-olds! Most importantly you’ll have opportunities every day to infuse others with your enthusiasm and ignite interest in this exciting subject with those new to it.
As well as gaining invaluable experience and vocational skills, as this is an apprenticeship position, you’ll also be working towards earning a Level 3 qualification in Learning Development. Due to restrictions on apprenticeship funding however, please note that this role is not available to anyone with a formal teaching qualification at Level 3 or above.
Applicants will need to hold a GCSE at C or above, or equivalent, in English. Additionally, qualifications in History or Drama would be desirable. You should enjoy and excel in team work, be enthusiastic about completing your Level 3 qualification and passionate about delivering great experiences for all who visit the National Civil War Centre.
