We are looking for someone to deliver two 2 hour teacher training workshops with our volunteers in Edinburgh. This is a paid role.
About the Project
Food Sharing will begin to teach waste reduction lessons in local high schools this year, whilst delivering a weekly box of excess food for school children to use for a pay-as-you-feel food stall. We are using the successful Fuel for Schools model, and will be teaching about food waste and food systems with a focus on how food interacts with the sustainable development goals.
Each food waste lesson will be delivered by a pair of enthusiastic Food Sharing volunteers.
About the Role
We are looking for a teacher trainer who can design and deliver workshops for our Food Sharing volunteers. We are looking for the same workshop to be delivered twice (with a different group each time.) These workshops should give volunteers the confidence to go into schools, pass on their knowledge of food waste reduction, and design lesson plans which are engaging and accessible for high school children. Volunteers will have had some prior experience of working/volunteering with children or in education.
We would like you to meet with the Project Coordinator at Food Sharing to go over the aims of the workshop before preparing a workshop plan. The workshop plan should be shared with the Project Coordinator for comments before the workshops are delivered.
After these workshops, volunteers will each design lesson plans based around the sustainable development goals.
We are looking for someone who has experience in delivering teacher training, and preferably who has experience working with volunteers. Workshops will be delivered on two weekday evenings in the latter half of August (exact dates are flexible.)
We can provide a space for the workshop to be delivered, at 17 Guthrie Street, EH1 1JG.
