The Schools Account Coordinator works to track relationships with existing school contacts, as well as identifying and building new relationships with schools in selected boroughs throughout London.
The role will include increasing the number of schools from areas with high levels of deprivation that are involved with the programme, as well as helping to tailor the programmes provided to better meet the needs of schools.
This role is heavily involved in our programme of science shows for schools, which gives school students a chance to see leading scientists and science communicators in action. The programme gives students unique access to enjoy cutting edge science in a world-class heritage venue, where many of the discoveries that have shaped the modern world were actually made. The majority of events are hour-long shows, and the programme as a whole caters to children aged 7–19. The events are categorised by key stage, and cover topics within biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering.
The role will involve conducting informal research with teachers to feed into a review of the science education events programme, and the education programme in the Faraday museum.
This post is funded by the John Lyon’s Charity. It is a part-time, 3 day per week, position and will continue until the end of October 2014. There is the possibility of an extension or full-time position, dependent upon funding. This role would likely suit a freelancer.
To apply for this position, please send a CV and covering letter to Kathryn Hageman at firstname.lastname@example.org by 12.00pm on Friday 31 January. Interviews will be held during the week commencing 3 February.
