Who we're looking for

We need a smart, switched on, adaptable outdoor instructor with youth work experience to guide young people through their Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award. If supporting sixth year students from across the central belt to achieve this Scottish Government supported youth development award sounds good to you, then read on.

Young people on the Award

What you'll be doing

You’ll make sure the Award runs smoothly. You’ll co-ordinate and communicate with participants, groups and schools, keeping them involved and informed. You’ll recruit your participants from school, and prepare them for their residential course. You’ll then deliver a challenging Outward Bound Course for your groups. Back home you’ll then host weekly project group meetings to supervise their preparation, learning, planning and practical delivery of their community project. These meetings could be 'out of hours' and you will need to be able to travel independently across the central belt of Scotland.

A hugely rewarding project

This job is a mix of outdoor education, youth working, facilitation and managing groups of stakeholders to keep the projects on track. We're looking for someone the young people can trust, to support them through their learning journey.

The Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award has been developing and helping young people in Scotland for over 20 years. We don't think it's ever been needed more, to help them to reconnect, rebuild and recover after the pandemic.
