Forest School Assistant, London SE21

Club or setting:Jolly Foresters Urban Forest Club
Location:South London Scout Centre, London SE21
Hours:5.5 hours per day, 5 days per week during holidays.

Job title:Forest School Assistant
Salary:£12 per hour
Closing date:15 February 2019


Jolly Foresters are looking for a qualified Forest School Practitioner to join us for our Holiday club and our term time class on a Wednesday. We are open during all school holidays (16 weeks per year) and every Wednesday during school term time. We can be flexible if you are only looking for holiday work.

You would need to be qualified with a Forest School qualification up to level 3 and  have experience in working with children in any age group from 3 years - 9 years old. 

Jolly Foresters is all about having fun! We run for 4 hours per day so the children who attend are there to have fun, in nature and with friends old and new! We use tools to create and every day with Jolly Fosters is an adventure. No 2 days are the same!

The job would involve setting up the camp each morning, preparing the fires for ‘cafe time’ and facilitation in the activities involving tools. We go on a hike every session into the forest where we play games, collection activities and encourage unstructured play! 

The right person will love children, be a team player, have common sense and thinks ahead! As it is a forest club, we do encourage the children to take risks so therefore our safeguarding  practices have to be our highest priority! We are a fun club and we want all our children and practitioners to have fun! Isn't that what school holidays are for!
