The British Hen Welfare Trust is always looking for more volunteers to support its education programme for schools and other educational and care settings across the UK. Education volunteers will lead workshops to help primary school pupils (aged 4 – 11) explore egg production and animal welfare topics and gain the knowledge and skills to make food choices that are healthy for both themselves and for farmed animals. To find out more click here.
Most education volunteers will have their own hens and be willing to take one or two of them to schools to meet the pupils. To find out more about the role, read the role description below and fill out the form underneath to apply.
As this role will involve working with children, you will need to either possess an enhanced DBS check, or be prepared to undergo a DBS check. We also require a head shot photograph for ID cards which must be taken into schools.
