Are you a fluent Gaelic speaker living in or around Edinburgh? An exciting volunteering opportunity is currently available to help contribute to a unique new outdoor learning project.
‘Ar Tir’ (Our Land) is an educational project that enables pupils to create connections with the natural world by learning through land and culture. Taking part in activities that are based on Scottish Gaelic culture can make learning active and experiential, and achieve outcomes across the whole curriculum as well as addressing current environmental issues. ‘Ar Tir’ is about exploring the local environment and discovering our relationship with it (past, present, and future).
I am looking for someone who is interested in helping make this project deliverable in Gaelic. In return full training and travel expenses will be provided as well as the opportunity to gain experience working with young people in an outdoor setting. You don’t necessarily need previous experience but enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and share knowledge of the natural environment is essential. This opportunity will require enrolment into the PVG scheme.
