Encouraging, supportive and fun
Volunteer Education Assistant (Current Employee) – Purfleet, Essex – 4 September 2017
Typical day, preparing for education activities for school children and families, formal and informal.
Learned to run educational outdoor activities, with lots of guidance and support, on my own, with colourful and rewarding outcome and achievement.
Looked after, provided training and great on-going support.
Relaxed environment, hardworking, very professional and good laugh.
Hardest part of role is not forgetting to take equipment with you to education room when you have a long way to walk!
Enjoyable bit is being a small cog in big machine, which is an established national and international organisation that educates people about the world around them and brings nature to your doorstep.
Weather conditions outside!
