Are you passionate about getting young people outdoors and keen to promote Earth heritage and connecting with nature? The North Pennines AONB Partnership are looking for a trainee to follow a course of public engagement training with our staff unit and our partners.

The North Pennines AONB Partnership has just launched a new project – Expanding Horizons – focused on supporting wellbeing through outdoor experiences for young people. Further information and a list of trainee responsibilities for the project can be found in the attached documentation.

Trainees will be involved in delivering outdoor education and wellbeing programmes with primary school children, a series of events for families including pre-school children and their carers, and working with people with autism and their families. This traineeship will primarily be supporting the project officer role in our staff team, based in our Stanhope office but with some travel around the area, particularly in County Durham, with some home working.

If you are committed to improving wellbeing, working with young people and celebrating the outdoors, we want to hear from you.

The successful candidate will be self-employed. Bursary payments equate to the hourly rate of the living wage determined by Durham County Council, however, as it is a training payment, there are no sickness or holiday payments and it is not taxable. Bursary payments will be made fortnightly in arrears on receipt of a timesheet and subject to satisfactory progress. If successful, you will need to register as self-employed and obtain appropriate public liability insurance.

Applicants should hold a Level 3 qualification in a subject related to conservation or the natural environment and/or land management together with having experience of volunteering or work experience in working with children or young people, education, nature conservation, heritage management, event management or communications.

We are also running an on-line Q&A session for anyone who would like to meet the AONB staff team who will be working with the successful candidate, before deciding whether or not to make an application. This will be held at 6pm on Thursday 6th January on Zoom. If you would like to be sent the link, please contact naomi@northpenninesaonb.org.uk

Interviews are scheduled to be held via Microsoft Teams on Thursday 27 January 2022.

For further information or an informal chat, please contact Naomi Foster, Expanding Horizons Project Officer via email at naomi@northpenninesaonb.org.uk
