Posted for Hazard Alley
Hazard Alley is part of a charity called The Safety Centre. They show children and adults how they can stay safe, understand risks and avoid accidents through powerful experiential learning.
They are looking for enthusiastic, reliable and flexible volunteers who are available Term Time and enjoy working with primary school children. As one of the volunteers, you’re part of a close-knit community, all with a common goal – to use education to save lives.
You’ll help deliver dynamic safety sessions with the Safety Centre team to young people and all they ask for is your time, a positive attitude and an interest in developing your own skills.
You can do this in one of two ways – either by becoming a tour guide in Hazard Alley or by being a guide answering the children’s emergency calls. You will be provided with the training you need, and complete the relevant disclosure checks.
As a tour guide you will have a group of 1 – 6 children to teach them about Health and safety by guiding them around the interactive village. You will teach them how to keep safe in a range of different scenarios which they will take with them into everyday life
The different scenarios will teach them about fire safety, home safety, making choices, road safety, railway safety, safe places to cross the road, water safety, bullying, internet safety and personal safety. For example, in the road safety scenario you will teach the children how to cross the road safely and how they should always wear their helmet when out on a bike.
No qualifications needed and training is provided.
Travel expenses offered.
One session per week of 2.5 hours or more if you like!
