Chiltern Open Air Museum are seeking Workshop Leaders to help deliver our award winning children’s education programme of History, Science and Literacy workshops.

We are looking for candidates that ideally have proven experience of working with children, in a formal or informal educational capacity. Some expertise in prehistory is an advantage, though not essential, as training will be provided. You need to be confident working with children, happy to deliver workshops in costume and to work outside in a variety of weather conditions.

Schools are usually onsite between 9.30am and 2.30pm on weekdays, so workshop leading opportunities available are likely to be between these hours.

Please note the museum is in a rural location with limited public transport links.
