We are looking for a passionate, experienced and talented individual to join our Science Learning & Public Engagement department at the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Part of Royal Museums Greenwich, this team develops and delivers world-class astronomy and space exploration programmes, resources and media for a range of visitors and audiences.
Deadline: 16 September 2018
This post will primarily be responsible for the delivery of our popular programme workshops and planetarium shows for nursery and infant school groups (EYFS and KS1, including ages 3-7). These use songs, music and story-telling to deliver simple and engaging learning outcomes.
The post-holder must have well-developed singing and storytelling skills, excellent presenting skills and a good understanding of child development and the EYFS and KS1 curricula. They must also have a solid track record of delivering similar work elsewhere for children aged 3 to 7. Basic scientific knowledge is desirable but not necessary.
The post-holder will receive training on the delivery of relevant workshops and planetarium shows and on answering simple astronomy questions typically asked by very young children.
They will work alongside a second Nursery & Infants Presenter and with the wider team, reporting to the Senior Manager for Science Education.
