  • £25,000 – £30,000
  • Dumfries House, Cumnock
  • Closing 26th July 2021

The Prince’s Foundation provides holistic solutions to challenges facing the world today. We champion a sustainable approach to how we live our lives and build our communities, we run a diverse programme of education and training for all ages and backgrounds, and we regenerate and care for places where communities thrive and that visitors enjoy.

We work nationally and internationally but at the heart of our organisation is the heritage-led regeneration of the Dumfries House estate and its wider community, where our principles and philosophies are explored and put into practice.

The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by The Prince of Wales’s philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world we can create a more sustainable future.

Programmes take place within and beyond the charity’s sites, including at Dumfries House, with its Education Farm, STEM centre and Health and Wellbeing Centre, and in Shoreditch, East London and Trinity Buoy Wharf in Tower Hamlets, London.

STEM Programme: The STEM programme is delivered through practical hands on workshops, family events and teacher training within five key themes: Aerospace, Renewable Energy, Environmental Science, Food Science and Sustainable Design, these themes make the most of the existing expertise in the wider Prince’s Foundation, as well as the local large engineering employers. A standard day’s work would involve setting up, delivering, and clearing up workshops from 9am-3pm, with time for programme development, planning and other activities in afternoons and non-school days.

Due to themes and existing expertise on the estate a candidate with a background in physics, engineering or digital technologies would be at an advantage. The candidate should however be comfortable teaching a wide range of STEM to a primary and early secondary school level, with support from the wider Education team and Industry experts.

The wider education programme on Dumfries House Estate is delivered across themes including: STEM; Food, Farming and Horticulture; Outdoor Activity; Textiles and Building Crafts. Due to the holistic nature of the programme, the post holder will be required to assist in these areas from time to time, take part in CPD in these areas and work with colleagues across the education team on cross curricular education projects.

The post holder will assist in the development and implementation of workshops, industry training programmes, short courses and project related education activity including large scale events and cross curricular delivery.
