We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Lecturer in Outdoor Learning with knowledge and experience in outdoor education and the ability to teach outdoor activities.
You will be a dynamic and highly motivated individual, who is keen to join an enthusiastic team with a passion for creating transformational learning experiences. You will be integral to the delivery of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as keen to contribute to future developments.
Applications are encouraged from those with an expertise in one or more of the following areas: health & wellbeing, inclusion & diversity, social and environmental equity, contemporary leadership and/or experiential learning in the outdoors.
