A large pop-up gazebo will be driven to schools, erected on the field or car-park and classes will be able to visit in turn and take part in a range of activities. The activities will be linked to the National Curriculum, the RE syllabus, or focus on a bespoke topic in discussion with teachers prior to the visit.

    The Role would suit

    • Individuals that are potentially looking into careers within teaching or event management
    • Those wanting experience in presenting to a range of audiences
    • Those wanting experience working for a historic building/ environment
