The Friends of Barnet Environment Centre (FoBEC) is a charity providing activities for the local community and for schools in order to educate and inspire a lasting interest in and appreciation of the natural world. Teaching takes place outdoors in a 7.5 acre nature reserve and in a purpose built centre, which is shared with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. The site at Byng Road EN5 4NP is owned by Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and the nature reserve is managed and maintained by the FoBEC volunteers to the benefit.
The Environment Education Manager will plan and deliver environmental education sessions that make use of the landscape of the nature reserve and its habitats (including ponds, mini-beast areas, woodlands and meadow) and which are relevant to the EYFS, KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum. There are extensive notes and also the equipment needed for these sessions. There will also be some tailored sessions for secondary school pupils and youth groups, and organised visits for the local community.
The teaching sessions are offered to schools on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, normally between the hours 10.00-14.00. Youth groups visit early evening, a 1-1.5hr session between the hours of 5.30-7.30. The Education Manager will also promote and manage school bookings, including initial contact with schools, arrange dates and times, send confirmation paperwork and invoices, and update or suggest changes to the website. Much of this administrative work can be carried out at home.
The annual payment to the Environment Education Manager is stated as a range because it is to some extent reliant on educational bookings. During the lockdown it was possible for the previous Educator to carry out other work.
Further details about the post are on our website and we welcome any queries. The Charity is entirely run by volunteers so we prefer email rather than a phone call.
