Head of Activities and Excursions
This position is non-residential. It is a fundamental role for the success of the Summer School and the post-holder works closely with the Camp Manager on all points.
The Head of Activities & Excursions (HoAE) will be tasked with overseeing the organisation of all suitable, enjoyable and appropriate non-academic activities. They will also have responsibility for the organisation and running the offsite excursions. This involves ensuring day and evening activities are organised, including weekend excursions.
The post-holder will be the team lead for all activities staff and be responsible for the smooth running of the activities sector of the camp, ensuring that all the activities assistants know the schedule for each day and have enough resources to ensure the smooth running of each activity. The HoAE must also ensure that the Head of Residential & Welfare (HoRW) is kept fully informed of the planned evening activities and weekend excursions.
This is a key position for the smooth running of the Summer School. Students will engage directly with the post-holder, so it is very important that you feel comfortable working with Summer School participants ranging in age from 8-17 years. We are looking to fill this post with someone who is confident as a leader and has empathy with learners. The post-holder must have a full understanding of the requirements for Child Protection and Safeguarding, knowing and understanding the distance that staff and students must maintain is crucial to this role. There cannot be any social media contact or any behaviour that contravenes our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy. Ideally, we are looking to recruit a member of staff that will join us again for future Summer Schools.
