Education Communicator

- full time

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for the right individual to gain invaluable experience working for a leading Outreach Education Company with an excellent reputation. Learn by Design (LBD) are actively recruiting a full time Education Communicator to begin as soon as possible (note we may have several positions available).

The role primarily involves delivering bespoke/corporate workshops to school pupils, of a variety of ages (mainly KS3 pupils), at schools across the country. Our unique approach to inspiring learners makes use of exciting equipment, technology and various props to ensure a quality learning experience for young people, ensuring LBD is a highly respected and innovative education facilitator.

Typical Day of an Education Communicator

As this isn’t a typical office job, or a typical job at all, every day you work for LBD is going to be different, exciting and challenging. We work in schools across the Country. On a typical day, you can expect to meet at our central vehicle depot, (based just outside Derby), at an agreed time to meet the team leader for the day. The team travel together to the school in order to set up before the school day begins. Our day then follows the school’s timetable. Once the workshops have been delivered the team returns to the vehicle depot together, or travels on to the next location. This is a fantastic opportunity to travel the country and explore areas you may not have seen before!

During quieter periods of delivery, such as school holidays, you will be expected to work out of our central office in Tamworth, where you will support the LBD team in creating new workshop content, maintaining equipment and helping with all other work tasks as identified by your line manager.

What do we Deliver?

Learn by Design delivers a selection of quality activities varying from corporate sponsored days to our own bespoke workshops, to a wide range of age groups.
