An exciting opportunity has arisen to be an influential part in the delivery and development of Uniformed Public Services department at Easton and Otley College.

A large section of the Uniformed Public Services curriculum has an Outdoor Education focus and as a result we are looking for a specialist in this area.

The units of delivery include: Unit 8: Adventurous Activities for Level 2’s; Unit 10 and 11: Skills in Land and Water Based Activities for Level 3 Yr1s and Unit 9 and 35: Land Navigation and Multiday Expeditions for our Level 3 Year 2 students.

We are also looking for this individual to take the lead in supporting students to complete the Duke of Edinburgh awards during their time at college so experience in this is essential.

The Uniformed Public Services department is a growing area for the college and this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of this journey.
