Job Title:     Education and Outreach Officer
Organisation:     Milton Keynes Museum
Salary:     £13,870 p.a.
Type:     Part-Time Position (20)
Location:     Milton Keynes, England
Closing Date:     Friday, March 30th, 2018
Job Ref No:    
Job Description:
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and organised person with a strong track record in the development and delivery of inspiring education and outreach programmes, working with a range of subject matter, audiences and approaches.

Education is at the heart of the museum’s work, and an active, ‘hands-on’ approach has become key, overseen by an established volunteer education team. The Education and Outreach Officer will be responsible for working with this team to deliver a comprehensive and valued education and outreach programme, strengthening existing provision and launching new initiatives such as work with new communities, further and higher education providers and assist, where necessary with the Museum’s internal training programme.

The Education Programme is the priority for the Education Officer and is likely to demand most time and continued involvement. It is envisaged that the Education Officer will lead a team of Outreach Volunteers and the programme will:

• Bring the Museum to the attention of a wider audience and so generate more education visits (at least doubling the number within 3 years);
• Look at ways of bringing heritage to audiences that currently do not visit the Museum, especially the disadvantaged, and of finding ways of providing them with access to the Milton Keynes Collection.

The post would suit a person with an innovative and creative approach to education and outreach, who would enjoy the challenge of leading on learning and community engagement through a major museum redevelopment and re-launch
Required Skills:
Essential for the role:

• Experience of developing and introducing an Education Programme for a Museum
• Excellent presentation skills, with ability to plan and facilitate workshops, training and other learning activities across a broad range of subjects and audiences – including family learning
• Experience of engaging with and achieving participation of diverse ethnic and community groups
• A knowledge of current curriculum requirements;
• Experience of developing and delivering sessions for schools, across a range of subjects (e.g. history, STEM etc.)
• An ability to inspire learning in students of different ages, abilities and backgrounds and motivate other teaching colleagues;
• Experience of writing education resources for different audiences, key stages and themes
• Excellent team working, communication and organisational skills
• A dedication to community engagement and active, ‘hands-on’ and skills-based learning for diverse audiences.
• Experience of working with volunteers
• Genuine interest in social history and the history of Milton Keynes and region
• A sound knowledge of best practice in community engagement
• Experience of developing/working on community initiatives with external partners
• Experience of developing volunteering/work experience initiatives with schools, further and higher education providers
• Experience of applying for funding for education and outreach projects
Application Instructions:
Please apply with a two-page CV and covering letter outlining your experience relevant to the criteria and your reasons for wishing to work at Milton Keynes Museum.
